Part found-object sound sculpture, part new music performance, and part interactive conversation about human relationships with objects. A set of vintage suitcases mount dangling curiosities & repurposed harmonic assemblages.
Thomas Willeford, founder of Brute Force Studios, author of Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos (McGraw-Hill, 2011), and well-known steampunk guru, will demonstrate how to build working, wearable, fun DIY steampunk projects from his forthcoming book, The Steampunk Adventurer's Guide, while in full costume.
Idontdordinary, I create beyond what the eye sees. When others say "WHY" I say "WHY NOT"? Nothing wasted,nothing lost. A NEW CREATION. I am a true artist that re purposes what is perceived as hopeless. INSPIRATION and REBIRTH
