Make Magazine: Mini-Maker Faires this Weekend!

By , 2012/09/19 @ 2:00 pm

In 2012 there will be close to 60 Mini Maker Faires around the globe.  Mini Maker Faires are organized by individuals, hackerspaces and maker groups, schools, and larger institutions like science museums.  They are diverse in scope, resources and origin, but all share an interest in connecting and celebrating makers.

At World Maker Faire New York next weekend, over twenty such Mini Maker Faire producers will be meeting up, telling stories, and learning about new tools.

If you are interested in meeting some of these folks and learning more about our Mini Maker Faire program, please come out to Maker Faire New York for our Sunday 11 a.m. morning session “Mini Maker Faires: Building Local Maker Community Around the Globe.”  Note that if you can’t make it, you can watch the livestream at google.com/+MAKE.

Now for the updates!   Two Mini Maker Faires are happening this weekend:

“This display focuses on the creation of my personal characters, and how they are brought to life through pictures, stories and wearable art. Visitors are encouraged to create their own characters and stories, and to examine the processes that go into illustrating a picture or story. Namely, character design, concepting, research and execution techniques.” ~Lisa Casaus

The Chuppers

The Chuppers are sound & video contraptions put together from various components that offer unique and hands-on “instruments” for creative inspiration. At the Mini Maker Faire, there will be a Diorama Chupper that will allow folks to stage a miniature “set” and with cameras and video mixer, insert their face in the scene, taking their own Chupper portrait, which will be emailed to them immediately. We will also have some audio Chuppers for all to manipulate to provide sound ambiance.

The airmonica is a easy-to-learn tweakable DIY musical instrument that you can use to perform harmonic musical ditties by accompanying a tri-tone arpeggiator. There are endless opportunities to expand the airmonica in any way that will make it your your own custom instrument.
