New Nemo Gould piece at Maker Faire


One of my fave found-object artists/kinetic sculptors, Nemo Gould, is going to be at Maker Faire again this year. He’ll be there as part of the Applied Kinetic Arts group which also includes Benjamin Cowden, Jonathan Foote, Carl Pisaturo, Kal Spelletich, Greg Brotherton, Christopher T Palmer, Alan Rorie, Mark Galt, and Reuben Margolin. This is an astounding opportunity to see the current work of some of the most impressive people working in kinetic art. Nemo will also be on a panel I’m hosting on Saturday (4pm on the Make: television stage) which will include a number of the artists involved in Device Gallery in San Diego.

Above is a piece Nemo will be premiering at Maker Faire, a little magical box where you can peer into the world of Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
