Project: Strato Sculpin​ ©

 

The Strato Sculpin© was a group project Built specifically for display at the San Diego Mini Maker Faire held in December of 2013.  As fate would have it, the forecast for that day included heavy rain. Thus, all outside displays were cancelled...including the Sculpin.  

 

The first showing of the Strato Sculpin© was a few months later at Drake & McTrowell's production, "Duel at Dusk"

2013
Project: The Shrink Ray and Islands in the Steam from the Cabinet of Diminutive Curiosities

 

The Shrink Ray was a group project designed for the maker room at Gaslight Gathering III.  Keeping with the convention theme of Traveling the Seven Seas,  the exhibit was based on the idea that travellers should have the ability to "pluck" select pieces of real estate from the landscape they were flying over. The Shrink Ray aided the collector in shrinking the desired terrain for storage and transport on board the airship.

Ten individual artists were recruited to make fourteen "islands" for the exhibit along with a dozen artists/makers to build the Shrink Ray.
