In the Tinkering Studio, there is a Cabinet of Curiosities, where we display some beautiful work by artists whom we got inspired by or whose work goes along with the Open Make themes.
We also display some things that visitors (or some of us) made during the Tinkering Studio's activities. Since things in the cabinet have been changing from month to month (Nicole has been in charge of curating the cabinet along with the themes of Open Make), I thought I would like to share what kind of stuff are displayed in our cabinet currently.
Of course, we have pieces of our artist in residence last month, Paul Spooner. This is one of his classic automata : Spaghetti Eater. On the side, there is also a video to show his automata in action.
At the bottom of Paul's automata, there are Walter's trash automata. Making automata out of trash was one of the activities that we did at Open Make last month. We are going to have this activity at Maker's Faire too!
Laser cut jewelries made of book covers by Laura Bruland (Yes & Yes Designs).
Artist, Cathy McEver's wearable scarf with tiny pieces of trash.
