Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film.

What if we designed a new kind of “maker space” — a space that isn’t just for putting pieces together, but also for seeing and understanding a project’s behavior in powerful ways?
