Events | NYC Maker Faire 2015

While I am working the movement infrastructure for Saturday and Sunday performances, the energy of preparation for the Maker Faire brings somehow some comfort. Can making provide healing? Can people be brought together by making? These are the initial thoughts, summarized in such "dense" questions.
Below are few images of an event powered by creativity, excitement and joie de vivre.

Located at the center of the elliptical square the obelisk function as a sundial, with the faces aligned to the four cardinal points.
