WELCOME!

What is a Maker Faire? Simply put, a Maker Faire is an event created by Make magazine to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset”.  But don’t take our word for it.  Take a look at just a tiny fraction of the photos from last year’s Atlanta Mini Maker Faire:

Cog in the Machine

Cog in the Machine

Cog in the Machine is an exploratory sidewalk piece about the role of humanity. The world is an amazing place and is ever-changing. We go about our lives not thinking about our affects on others and how the use of technology changes our lives so rapidly.

In this piece you will see bits of machinery and technology, both old and new, that we take for granted. The cut into the sidewalk reveals a machine world beneath. This only begins to expose what is in store for mankind. As we cover the earth with man made material and move further from nature, we lose track of the path that we are on and don’t focus on the future.

Technology is all about making life easier for people, but once it is all used up what is left of mankind? Where does old technology go to die? I beg you to ponder these ideas as you envision a world of machines.
