Quick trip to see some great new art and show a few of our flip-books to a prospective gallery. Success on both points:) More to come soon!
Started new imagery for the next flipbook series. Experimenting with color this time.
Walking through the departure lobby, Mark and I were surprised by the special installation on view. Automata: Mechanical Wonders of the Nineteenth Century. We’re not especially fond of mimes or clowns, but it was a beautiful installation and a fitting end to a great weekend.
Attended the San Mateo Maker Faire this year with our Los Angeles hackerspace Crash Space. The booth won three blue ribbons, with one of those awarded to our mechanical flip-books. We felt so grateful to be recognized with such a great company of inventors and creatives. Many thanks to everyone who came by and let us share our little wonders!
Here’s a video of some of our favorite moments from the faire.
Spent Friday visiting ArtMRKT 2012 in San Francisco. The galleries made a strong showing and the artists were well represented. We like these art fairs because they allow us to get acquainted with many galleries in one afternoon. We also were very excited to buy some art (a print from EB Harris). Here are some noteworthy highlights:
We were invited to display our kinetic flipbooks at the mindshare50 art expo and lecture series in Los Angeles, CA.
