"Making Moves" Maker Faire Rome

Rome hosts the European edition of Maker Faire. It is the fourth year that the city celebrates the art and science of making, always on a different site to accommodate the exponentially growing number of visitors. The site of the 2016 edition is the Fiera di Roma, the new fourteen pavilions exhibition ground near the airport Leonardo da Vinci in Fiumicino, which open to the public in 2006.
It has been my first participation to the Rome Maker Faire; it was quite a discovery to learn how welcomed the event is by the city: creativity and innovation are present in almost any stand, celebrated by perhaps over one-hundred-thousand visitors. Middle and high school student en masse came to visit the exhibition on October 14.

"Making Moves" at New York Maker Faire

First at the Maker Faire: the 'Movement Infrastructure' has been placed outdoor the Great Hall of the Queens Hall of Science. It was quite chilly to perform. The icosahedron was sitting on a face inspiring different geometric movements. The hexagonal pavement and the building skin pattern were also defining a geometric of movement configurations.

When politics sadly becomes spectacle—as we are witnessing with the 2016 presidential elections— such presidential debate has become a major viewing attraction, similar to a Superbowl party. Below a few snapshot from the viewing part at the YouTube Space in New York. I miss you Bernie!
