Purina ONE

Exhibit

Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.


Reverse Abstraction

Presenter

The Reverse Abstraction series begins with a simple premise: that humans and computers perceive the world through different languages, and what is concrete for one is abstract for the other. The objects and shapes so familiar in human art can be neither perceived nor conceived by computers in their original form. Likewise, the codes that are so familiar to a computer are merely scattered symbols to human sensibility. The Reverse Abstraction series attempts to bridge the gap by constructing traditional objects in dual forms: as the classical object and as the hexadecimal and binary codes that represent them.


Schrodinger

Exhibit

Schrodinger is an exercise in frustrated observation. The closer you inspect the piece, the lower the lights will fall and your reflection will obscure the contents. In sum, there is nothing to see here.

The Art of Critical Making

Presenter

As making itself takes on new cultural currency, it is an important moment to consider why we are driven to make, and why we make what we do. At Rhode Island School of Design, students make questions, ideas, and objects that define a new form of critical thinking - an interactive dialogue between mind and hand that we call "critical making." Like the artistic process itself, it is deeply introspective, passionate, and often provocative

Many of us hope to change the world—or another person's perspective—with the things we make. This talk will explore how RISD's critical making helps bring us closer to these aspirations.
