Meet Us at Maker Faire New York
September 18, 2012
It’s official! ImageThink will be at Maker Faire New York. (We’re big fans — check out our graphic recordings from Maker Faire San Francisco this past spring.) The immense festival of all things hackery, DIY, crafty and creativity in general comes to the New York Hall of Science in Queens on September 29 and 30th. It’s expected that over 50,000 people will visit the Faire over the two days. We love the intense creative energy these events — Maker Faires bring together art, science, machines, craft and everything in between. This year at the New York Faire, you can see curiosities like the Life-Sized Mousetrap and Cupcake Cars. You can learn to solder, screen-print, program and pick locks! Come visit us at the NYSCI Auditorium, where we’ll be sharing the stage with some amazing speakers. On Saturday, Chris Anderson from WIRED and Bre Pettis of MakerBot will be giving a talk called “Going Big: From Maker Movement to New Industrial Revolution.” Another presentation will look at New York artists working with water in a talk titled “Hacking the Free Seas: Water-Borne Artists in New York City.” Sunday highlights will include a talk by Alton and Carrie Barron, a hand surgeon and a psychiatrist, on how the act of making things can actual heal us. We’ll be scribing for NASA’s Chief Technologist, Mason Peck, as well as New York Times tech columnist David Pogue. These are just a few of the great presentations that will fueling our markers and our imaginations at Maker Faire New York. Are you in New York City? Come on by. You can get tickets right here.
