The Annual Maker Faire in San Mateo was ages ago (May 15 -17) and I’m only posting now (Too much time sitting with the hummingbirds) but it was too good to ignore (and I only really made it to the light pavilion)! Next year I will devote more time and shell out for the VIP parking!
My favorite piece was this mesmerizing installation Sessilanoid by James Peterson, it felt like some kind of illuminated sea creature as it pulsated with color.
This dark pavilion was lit up like magic fairyland of glowing gadgets, inflatables, toys, projections and conveyances!
Stan Clark’s Astro Botanical Forest was playful and serene (in definite contrast to the air canon that was blowing out sonic smoke ring blasts at excited children of all ages who didn’t care about their ear drums).
This was one of several lit up blossoms that opened and shut.

Decorative LED colored cubes torchiere 2SQUARED Mini (above and below). Weather forecasting Tempescope (middle) makes clouds, rain, lighting. Blooms and helicopters that can be manipulated by mind control by Puzzlebox (left).
Interactive projection fun.
