7/25/2011 16:55:30Influence MachinesInfluence Machines, 2011. Materials: Acrylic, aluminum, dielectric materials. An electrostatic generator, or electrostatic machine, is a mechanical device that
produces static electricity, or electricity at high voltage and low continuous current. Electrostatic generators operate by using manual (or other) power to transform
mechanical work into electric energy. They develop electrostatic charges of opposite signs rendered to two conductors, using only electric forces. They work by using
moving plates, drums, or belts to carry electric charge to a high potential electrode. In this case he charge is generated electrostatic induction. This exhibit allows visitors to interact with the machines and dielectric materials in the installation creating unique movement and sparks!

8/7/2011 17:33:40Kalyle OrigamiMost everyone is familiar with the ancient, graceful art of origami. What people might not be aware is how this art form has been undergoing a tremendous renaissance starting from the 50's. What was once handful of simple forms enjoyed by children has evolved into life like sculptures with incredible detail and accuracy, able to depict the most complex of nature's creations..and one's imagination. Insects with all of their appendages, dragons with hundreds of scales, and bi-planes complete with propellers are now standards of an experienced origami artist. But how to enjoy these modern wonders..other than simply mounting them and looking at them at home? We feature hand folded origami earrings in over 20+ models, from angelfish to unicorns, covering classic designs over 1500 yrs old to modern ones being invented everyday. Earrings are made from a specialized Japanese paper called Yuzen Washi, renowned for their beauty and strength. Coated several times with a hard finish, they are extremely durable and sturdy. But most of all, they are absolutely unique, charming, and simply beautiful- art, be able to be worn, and therefore be seen and enjoyed everyday.http://kalisnowden.wordpress.com/http://www.flickr.com/photos/49209116@N02/ArtsKyleKimKalyle Origamitanner_vpr@yahoo.com1307 Magnolia StOaklandCalifornia94607I DO plan to sell merchandise at East Bay MIni Maker Faire 2011 as a "Commercial Maker"origami earrings and modelsStandard booth space (10'x8' space), will bring my own table and chairs.IndoorNormal - does not interfere with conversationNoneI don't need WiFi Internet access.First Friday event posterNoYesCommercial maker booth (primarily sales booth)

8/11/2011 17:34:41Pulsewave SFChipmusic is the art of utilizing otherwise obsolete computer hardware such as video game consoles and home computing systems to make stunning music and visual works in a wide variety of styles. Chip musicians repair, modify and reprogram this equipment, taking it far beyond it's intended purpose and design specs to bring new life to devices that would otherwise stuff our landfills.

Come by the Pulsewave SF booth at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire to get hands on experience with the hardware and software that makes Chip Music tick, tock, bleep and bloop. Meet local Chip artists in the flesh to see how they work and participate in demonstrations of common modifications done to Nintendo Gameboys (and possibly other hardware).

Pulsewave SF is the West Coast sister of New York's longest running Chip Music event Pulsewave, showcasing fantastic local acts, drawing international talent to the SF Bay Area, and spreading the gospel of Chip Music to the greater public. Resident artists include Crashfaster, Starpause, The Glowing Stars, Doctor Popular and more.

Possible elements:

1. A hands-on music making table, offering chances to make music and visuals with modified (and unmodified) old school computing and video game hardware. We can provide our own small projector for this.

2. A second table with potentially hands-on demonstrations of modifications to be done to such hardware (adding backlights, installing specialized sound outputs, etc - soldering is involved) - there is a possible "sales" element to this, wherein we could offer parts and potentially consoles - but as it wouldn't be particularly "commercial", I'm not sure how this works with the $100 fee.

3. Presentations - a number of us are prepared to give presentations on various subjects, including the effects of limitations in chiptune hardware on creativity, demonstrations of basic hardware modifications, the history of chiptune as a genre, and possibly other things. It would be fantastic to have a projector (and for hardware demos, a document camera).

4. Performances have been a successful part of our Maker Faire presence in the past. We have a number of acts who could potentially perform, either on a dedicated stage or on the normal performance spaces. We do have enough sound equipment that we could potentially bring to set up a dedicated stage (as we did at the San Mateo Maker Faire). Potential acts include
Crashfaster - crashfaster.com
The Glowing Stars - theglowingstars.com

8/17/2011 0:21:21Whiskerman24-year old multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Graham Patzner has been performing his edgy, hallucinatory soul songs to Bay Area audiences for years, most often as a solo act but also as the frontman of stripped-down folk ensembles, strings-only duos and five-piece horn sections. Early in 2011, after years of flux, Whiskerman took shape when Patzner found himself surrounded by a band that he felt he could call home.

Backed by singer and keyboardist Maddy Streicek, bassist Will Lawrence, drummer Nicholas Cobbett, and his brother Lewis Patzner on cello and trombone, Graham takes to the stage wildly wielding guitar, violin, piano and a distinct voice that's both powerful and vulnerable. His passion for the craft of songwriting and the importance of lyrics is apparent especially in his more recent compositions, many of which are on the group's debut record released this fall. The resultant sound is a Frankenstein fusion of a simple folk backbone, soulful blues core, wide-streching art-rock limbs and big jazz feet. Whiskerman calls it Ghost-Soul.

We want to develop the project in conjunction with the audience. Part of the project is a logo which we would like to use with the audience at Mini Maker Faire to create a stop motion video. The audience will be invited to alter the structure of the project's logo in any means they like. We will supply art supplies for the audience. Then help shoot the images and object to create the video. The project will become part of the online portion of the project.

“Hailing from Oakland, California, The Shants specialize in a blend of Southern folk and country, embossed with the sad sounds of the pedal steel guitar” - FILTER Magazine

“…Rustic and subdued, like the scant, heavily muted light that finds its way to the floor of a redwood grove - No Depression / Hyperbolium

“When you’re home from that dysfunctional mess listen to The Shants. They won’t harsh your mellow after you have that extra hit of (insert vice here). Listen and stare at the ceiling and try to figure out what the hell just happened. You might live through Christmas. The Shants combine mellow grooves with a sexy twang.” - SF Chronicle Music Blog - Off The Record

“There’s an odd, echoey, melancholy sound to Russian River Songs. Which isn’t a bad thing —it’s excellent music to mope to. With lovely blues guitar and some fantastic songwriting, The Shants make deceptively simple music, a blues/country/rock hybrid that’s soothing to a troubled mind. Skip Allums’ gentle, pretty vocals and an overall Southern vibe seal the deal.” - East Bay Express: Local Licks

8/21/2011 11:21:47Blue Ribbon SalvageBlue Ribbon Salvage is the result of a nearly 15 year collection of antique medals and findings. Each is a tiny work of art unto itself full of imagery and history. I gravitate towards reliefs of pugilists, archers, mothers, typists, birds, stags, saints, sinners, instruments, anchors, bees, goddesses, heroes, shoes, crossbows, divers, airplanes, cows, rabbits, acorns, baptismal scenes… ok just about anything.
My collection has found a new life as wearable artwork . Oddly enough it seems that each piece has a way of finding itself in the hand of the perfect wearer… I don’t really know how to describe it other than to say these are very specific pieces for very specific people.

As part of a semester long program, students from five Oakland High Schools built crazy go-carts that double as carnival rides. Along the way they also played with OxyAcetylene torches, MIG welding machines, mills, lathes and other fantastic tools, and built skills that employers are begging for. Did we mention that they also got high school and college credit? Come see what Career Technical Education is like in the 21st century.

This pyro girl found an old ceiling lamp fixture and she's going to make it FABULOUS. From baubles and beads to honeycombs and webbing, you can watch her fire up her torch to make pretty glass things. Adding each piece with string, wire, and good ol' fashioned epoxy, the final result will be a big, sparkly pile of AWESOME.

Because nothing makes this a high-class Maker Faire like a CHANDELIER!

8/24/2011 13:05:12Eurostache - Sound CreationsEurostache, with members based in the Bay Area, is a collective experimenting with sound by shedding traditional codes of music and instrument selection to create new methods of aural communication.

Performances center around real-time electro-acoustic collaboration with custom hand-built and circuit-bent instruments along with traditional ones. Extended vocal techniques humanize the highly transient nature of the live exploration. Additional layers of interaction with the audience include elements such as movement and live scoring to films.

Eurostache was founded in 2008 at the intersection of 23rd and Telegraph in Oakland and has six regular members that employ instruments that range from circuit-bent electronics, laptops, toys, a waterphone, and a singing tea kettle, to a cello, euphonium, and clarinet. The core ensemble is frequently augmented with guests from the San Francisco Bay Area. The group has previously performed at spaces such as Olympia Experimental Music Festival 2011 (Olympia, WA), Luggage Store Gallery (Oakland, CA), Vessel Gallery (Oakland, CA), Krowswork Gallery (Oakland, CA), San Francisco State University, CELLspace Gallery (San Francisco, CA), Mama Buzz Cafe (Oakland, CA) and Maker Faire (San Mateo, CA).

Your homemade creations (breads, jams, pickles, canned goods, home brews, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants.

Each swap is limited to 30 participants to allow for a very social swapping experience.

8/30/2011 0:41:13The Tin Can Banjo ProjectThe instruments of the Tin Can Banjo Project represent the distillation of 40 years of building, collecting, repairing, and studying stringed instruments from around the world. They are all built on the "drum and stick" principal, which by separating structural and acoustic functions, makes their construction simple and accessible. The use of found objects, minimally processed natural materials, and common articles of commerce is a rebuttal to the preciousness and fetishization of "legitimate" instruments, and a stand against the entropic tide.
Grab a can and a stick, and join in the fun!

8/30/2011 15:52:39Pioneers in EngineeringThe Pioneers in Engineering (PiE) Robotics Competition for Bay Area high school students seeks to encourage interest and diversity in higher education. PiE is a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics outreach program that gives back to the local community. UC Berkeley students mentor local high school students as they design, construct, and program a mobile robot.

A key feature of the competition is the $100 per team entrance fee, which ensures that finances are not a barrier to entry. Another central goal of PiE is to give UC Berkeley engineering students the opportunity to serve the local community while simultaneously gaining practical experience in hardware and software design as well as leadership and teaching.

8/31/2011 8:23:43Crank EnsembleThe Crank Ensemble had its beginning on the summer solstice of 2005. Artist Larnie Fox had been invited to present a sound installation at the "Garden of Memory" event at a columbarium (a repository for human ashes) in Oakland California. He had planned to have a group small motorized sound sculptures with contact microphones that he could control and amplify, but the motor noise was bothersome. So, he build a group of very low-tech hand cranked instruments, and invited friends and acquaintances to play them. The people who volunteered for that first event are the Crank Ensemble. 

The instruments are made from inexpensive materials: plywood, coat-hangers, rubber bands, springs, bones, feathers, found objects and piezo microphones. A hand-cranked instrument is a mechanical version of a loop. By amplifying and layering the sounds they produce it is possible to create a wide range of rhythms and  sound environments. A conductor, usually Larnie, but not always, controls the pace and mixes the sound on a mixing board. No effects are used. The instruments function as stand-alone visual art as well as vehicles for performance

The band members are a diverse group of Bay Area residents. Some are actual musicians, but there are writers, visual artists, film makers, web designers etc., in the group. They have become good friends in the course of staging performances. 

The Ensemble has played in many venues in the SF Bay Area including The Oakland Museum, Tides Center's Thoreau Gallery, Maker's Faire, The Lab, Luggage Store Gallery, 12 Galaxies, and The San Francisco Dump. We have collaborated with Theatre of Yugen and the San Francisco Sinfonietta and were featured in Music from Other Minds' "Brink" series in San Francisco, and New Town Arts "Cams, Cranks and Computers and at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

• electrical outlet
• seven chairs.
• one table, big enough to accommodate a mixing board.
• one hour setup time, including sound check (noise)
• a PA is desirable but not essential for a small space.
• video live feed, with camera person focusing on individual instruments is desirable, but not essential.

Our standard performance time is two, twenty minute sets. Our standard pay is $500. A hands-on show and tell with the instruments is possible. We can be flexible

I (or guest conductor) sit in a chair in the middle of the stage in front of the table and simultaneously conduct the ensemble and run our own mixing board. Our performances are directed improvisation.

We will send out signal through two lines, right and left, from my mixing board. Stereo is essential to what we do. We would like to use your PA (recommended), but if that is not an option we have two small guitar amps we can use if it's a small space.

If there is an opportunity to have a live video feed focusing on the small instruments and projected on a big screen behind us it would enhance the performance.

8/31/2011 17:04:52Dancin Power ProgramDancin Power is a movement and music program that brings dance classes free of charge to hospitalized children, including patients facing chronic and life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception in 2006, the program has touched the lives of thousands of hospitalized children and their families.

Dancin Power uses uplifting dance movements and joyful music to transform the hospital environment from a sterile and impersonal setting to one of healing and vibrant ambiance. By carefully adjusting all movements to better match each patient's needs, Dancin Power is committed to putting physical activity within the reach of all children at the hospital regardless or their physical challenges.

We'd like to share with the community our work and give them a chance to experience some Dancin Power in their lives!
We'd use the time for a special workshop, more of hands on project than just for the audience to watch it.

8/31/2011 23:05:04Rambunctious Combat RobotsThese are combat robots- custom built radio-controlled machines designed to battle each other in a bulletproof arena. Each robot could have weapons ranging from flippers to spinning blades. Battlebots can range from miniscule 5-ounce fairyweights to 340- pound super heavyweight behemoths, though Team Asian Invasion competes in the 1 and 3 pound weight classes. The first bot that I built, Warpig, is a 1 pound bot with a powerful lifter and ultra-strong titanium armor. Then came Attitude, a 3 pound bot with an 8 inch titanium saw blade, designed to cut, rip, and shred! Most recently, both these robots competed in the international 2011 Robogames. Out of nearly 60 battlebots total, Warpig and Attitude both took a well earned bronze medal.http://www.youtube.com/user/limeblisssYoung MakersTroyMocktriturus@msn.comSan FranciscoCA94122I DO NOT intend to sell merchandise at East Bay MIni Maker Faire 2011.Standard booth space (10'x8' space), but need help with table and chairs (we have a limited supply).IndoorNormal - does not interfere with conversationI need an outlet for my laptop and monitorIt would be nice to have WiFi.I might be using my Spektrum radio, which uses 2.4 ghz frequency.Yes, I was part of the Young Maker's exhibit at the 2011 Maker Faire, San Mateo Fairgrounds.

8/31/2011 23:10:43Build-Your-Own Biology LabTekla Labs is a non-profit started out of UC Berkeley to provide interactive instructions for how to build DIY laboratory equipment using locally available supplies. Our goal is to help scientists worldwide build their
own infrastructure, with a particular emphasis on emerging-science settings.
We aim to develop an online network that provides:
- flexible and easy-to-follow design documents
- standard protocols to verify equipment quality

Here, we present an initial project from a student intern. Anthony has created the first piece of an interactive online library of “How-To” blueprints for construction of quality lab equipment using locally available offthe-shelf items. Together, Anthony and Tekla Labs built and documented the DIY process for building various kinds of lab media rotators with quality assurance support. We show that minimally customized off-the-shelf parts can combine to become multiple types of useful research-grade lab equipment.
Join us or come with ideas or input for our new projects!

8/31/2011 23:31:55For the People The fused dichroic glass art is a rather new medium and creative process. It was actually, originally created by the U.S. space program to be implemented in the outer atmosphere. Of little use to the space industry, it became adopted by a multitude of fused glass artists.
The reflective and refractive properties of fused glass, especially dichroic, are unlike any other creative material. Amazing compositions meld into one another once melted to over 1600 degrees and allowed to cool for a full day.
Although a glass creation, the final product is quite durable and will last forever if properly cared for. These wearable artworks will get countless compliments when worn around, guaranteed. Another beautiful thing is that they compliment both casual as well as formal clothing.
If, for some reason, you ever have an issue with your glasswork, feel free to bring it back to us and we will surely address the situation. We want these to go the distance and give everybody a little visual treat, brightening up their day.

9/1/2011 18:12:43TapigamiTapigami is an interactive installation. Danny Scheible has been creating an on going social installation for the past 6 years. Scheible use his art as a way to inspire, legitimize and provide equality to individual creativity. These shows are designed to redefine not only the meaning and context of the gallery space but also the interaction that is possible between artist and viewer. Scheible creates imaginary city scapes, gardens, and abstract environments all mashed together to break down normal social interactions. Scheible's environments should be approached as a platform to produce inspiration and legitimize artists. Breaking down the art making process to its simplest forms, commitment, material and questions, Scheible attempts to show the viewer creation is possible with simple belief. His materials are chosen to remove any friction and separation of the myth that art exists outside of day to day life and its interactions. Guest of Tapigami are welcome, invited and encourage to make there own creations and add them to the walls of the exhibition space and the maker faire. Danny Scheible acts as a guide to this interaction between self and material, constantly creating and remaking the existing show. Danny would like to remind all that are attending his show that an artist is someone you make yourself.

I will provide materials and instruction for everyone and show them my process and techniques. I will encourage them to create and to become part of my art. I will also be selling my art at the space.

Currently my installation consists of a 1500 square foot city, made out of 80,000 individual sculptures. A 40foot long 8 foot wide 12 foot high, leviathan created from 4000 wire hangers each covered with different fabric from donated and recycled garments, about 200 connect sculptures that can be kicked thrown passed around. an 12 foot high tree created out of books(it is my tree of knowledge). Also I have begun to commission artist to paint and color my city sculptures, thus creating murals inside my city. Lastly I will be creating work for the entire show and giving it to participants.

My work is made up of thousands of components and can fit any space. The only requirement for filling a space is time. I would be willing to create a large exhibition then the 10foot by 8foot.

9/1/2011 22:56:11Storing Kid EnergyWe will use a seesaw to capture kid energy and convert it into potential energy. The potential energy can then be released to power a small device (probably a fan).

This gives us a way to experiment with saving up some energy over a longer period of time and releasing it in a short burst. The original idea was to power a popcorn popper, however that requires more power than we can easily generate and store. So we decided to do it on a smaller scale first, to test out the principles.

We've exhibited this seesaw (the Water Totter) at EBMMF and the San Mateo Maker Faire, so we're fairly experienced at it. We haven't made this yet. We have the seesaw from last year, but the rest of the design is on the drawing board. I think we can get something interesting done; that's pretty much what happened last year.

9/2/2011 18:28:18Scribe: An Interactive Post-Card ProjectSummary-
“Scribe” is an interactive project utilizing the talents of poets, professional writers and calligraphers to transcribe post-cards for visitors through the lost art of letter writing. I propose that these writers will listen to the intended messages and then artistically transcribe onto pre-stamped postcards. With the help of professionals, Maker-Fair visitors and the intended recipients will become engaged in the age-old practice of
written correspondence.

Cost-
Participants will pay for stamps only. (The letters are presented pre-stamped upon completion)

Intent-
I intend to reinvigorate the art of the written word by utilizing the talents of writers and calligraphers. I want to initiate a conversation about modern communication practices and the value of a written letter as an art object and memento.

Description-
The art of letter writing is an astonishingly emotional method of communication. The quiet excitement of finding a personal letter and the tactility of holding a handwritten object is lost in the binary world. Email and text reinvented communication by conquering the boundaries of geography and time. But the ritual experience and intentionality of the handwritten message is becoming lost.
Historically, Scribes would provide a service to societies with low literacy rates. I believe this service can again be applied to a society that has become desensitized by the overexposure of modern communication. Facebook updates, tweets, and blogging have marginalized the unique connection people share with letters. By design handwritten letters are intended for one recipient with a deliberateness of word choice and composition, which stands in contrast to bulk texts and shared updates. Frequency, careless arrangement and the public nature of digital social communication have depersonalized the modern message. I believe this interactive project can reintroduce people to the power of writing.

9/6/2011 21:09:22Real Bread in 10 MinutesI am happy to do a 30 minute presentation in with the Urban Homesteading folks. All I need is a table on the stage to pretend-bake my bread on. It'd be great to have a mirror so people can see the table. Sabrina is trying to get the Maker Fair mirrored table-stage.

It would be great if I could get a $20 stipend and free admission for my efforts.


Here is a description:
--------------------------------------------------
Making bread is easier, faster and more flexible than you thought. You can make fantastic bread every day inexpensively with less than 10 minutes effort, including cleanup! In this class, you'll learn techniques to minimize the ordinary and maximize the extraordinary parts of making all kinds of bread at home. We'll talk about things like: instant yeast vs sourdough, refrigerated dough, crust, crumb, shaping, amendments, the chemistry and biology of bread, and the thousands of varieties of this staple food. Once you have the foundations, you'll see bread recipes as suggestions instead of steps to be followed. The sky is the limit!

This class was taught in a short form on the Maker Square Demo Stage at Bay Area Maker Faire 2011. And it has been taught to great accolades in a long form where we actually bake in class at the Institute of Urban Homesteading and in collaboration with WhatWillYouLearn.com

There will be bread to sample!
