MakerFaire 2009

Kinetic Arts, originally uploaded by jason.stajich.

Had a fun day at MakerFaire 2009 – quite overwhelmed by the things to see and do. Picked up a few fun wood art+science piece for my new office. I loved what Xylocopa makes – check them out, one of the pair is a lifesciences graduate student and also an artist drawing some deliciously detailed designs.

We also saw some more fun kinetic art like this piece as well as a some more art pieces from kinetic artist and friend Benjamin Cowden.

I also really want a 3D printer now – just need to figure out how we’ll actually (i.e. in lab) the scanned micrographs turned into 3D models of fungal cells…
