This past Saturday, the latest Open MAKE/Young Makers program took place at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Lanny Smoot (above) showcased his incredible strobing zoetrope, Virginia Fleck (middle image) hosted a workshop on building inflatable meditation cushions made from recycled plastic bags, Shih Chieh Huang (bottom image) displayed and discussed his mind-bending multimedia art, and Michael Schiess showcased some of his transparent pinball machines. The webcast of the day includes an intro by Dale Dougherty, presentations by the four featured makers, and a Q&A with the audience.

The “Materiality: Plastics” theme will run at The Tinkering Studio through Feb 6th. Starting on Feb 7th, the theme is “Materiality: Cardboard.” The next Open MAKE session, centered on the Cardboard theme, will be Feb 19th. See The Tinkering Studio website for more details.
