LED Costumes by Erin St Blaine

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Erin StBlaine

Come be inspired by the costume creations of Erin St Blaine. Erin is a light artist based in Northern California. She creates sculptures, costumes and artwork with programmable LED lights, often including interactivity and data visualization to bring her creations to life. Erin’s innovative creations explore the way LED lights and 3d printed objects interact with the human body in motion: onstage through dance and flow arts, connecting with audiences at events through interactive character costumes, or underwater with Glimmer, the world’s first fully submersible and swimmable LED mermaid tail.

Humpbacks of Notre Dame: How to Use Your Project in Activism

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: 3 Feet of Air
Home: California, United States
'Humpbacks of Notre Dame' is our award winning kinetic sculpture entry for 2022. We created our art as a tool to open a wide array of 'entry' points into a discussion about climate change. Spectators interacting with this piece lead themselves on a journey of discovery towards taking action on climate change. Elements from the original work will be recomposited as a static display, showing an example of using an existing event –the Kinetic Grand Championship– to bring awareness to the most important issue of our time: anthropogenic climate change. Whatever you or your cohort are already doing, you can use an existing venue to get your idea into the minds and hearts of others. Come see how we accomplished this with 'Humpbacks of Notre Dame.'

Trashlantis

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: 3 Feet of Air
Home: California, United States
Trashlantis is a mobile performance & kinetic sculpture, a backdrop for deep, meaningful conversations with people about the myth of recycling and the hazards of living in a 'plastisphere.' We won this year's Kinetic Grand Championship in Humboldt Country, California. Trashlantis tells a story ripped from today's headlines: plastic is creating brand-new ecosystems in the oceans. Trashlanteans are strange half-human, half-fish and half-trash beings from an ancient oceanic civilization. They comb the beaches and byways, sidewalks and highways for more plastic to build a Trashlantean civilization. They offer humans a chance to explore their relationship to this amazing material– and maybe even provide a splash of hope to those who are already working towards a toxin and trash free future.

Make composite structures with low VOC materials

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Robert van de Walle
Home: California, United States
Composite structures are ubiquitous and typically require a significant investment before fabrication can begin. I demonstrate how to use foam, glue, kraft paper, and window screen (and other low VOC materials) to duplicate much of the formability and durability of fiberglass. Perfect for fabricating small boats, bike fairings, large art installations, giant robot puppets, teardrop trailers, and theater props, this technology is very well suited for school and community groups. I will teach good techniques for cutting foam, laying up skins, and designing the structure to be durable.

Robomobile

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Russell Wilcox
Home: California, United States
Robomobile looks like a giant version of 1960s-era tin toy robots, with a person inside pedaling an adult trike. It has lights, and can go anywhere and talk to anyone. Despite being boxy and simple, it looks friendly and kids delight in it. Everyone asks 'are you a real robot?' to which I answer yes. I built it out of steel and aluminum, foamcore and plywood, a licence plate holder and trailer lights. It's a hit at Halloween parties.
