Every year, Maker Faire displays the perfect, harmonious blend of art and tech, science and craft, and everything in between. This year’s Maker Faire Bay Area, truly the world’s largest DIY festival, takes place at the San Mateo Fairgrounds on May 22nd and 23rd. One of the new makers presenting is Jason Dietz, and he’s bringing his awesome UFO Lamps (pictured above). We connected with Jason for a little Q&A, and you can read the full interview, plus see a video of the lamps in action, over on our sister site makezine.com. You can still get discounted tickets until May 12. For all the information you need, head over to the Maker Faire website.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
