Binary Winter Wise Robots

Craft & Design

I love new takes on old classics, and this one definitely caught my eye at the Bazaar Bizarre at Maker Faire Bay Area a couple of weeks ago. Pictured above is Binary Winter’s Wise Robots design, a futuristic twist on the old Japanese proverb sanzaru. Binary Winter definitely has a style all their own. From their site: “Our designs are an amalgam of the things we love best, from Art Nouveau to robots, satellites and the ballet of flight. We are smitten with willowy lines and charmed by the grace of machinery.” Check out their Etsy page for more.

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.
