Tuepah + Yandle | Maker Faire
Debbie Tuepah ('11) and Carlyn Yandle ('10) ask Maker Faire visitors to participate in the continued making of The Network, a public collaborative fibre-sculpture that is a visual representation of social interaction. The artists are interested in creating a no-barriers opportunity for anyone and everyone to join in the making, join into the conversation and see where it takes them.
Lines are woven into area and volume, using only waste petroleum-based material such as plastic sheeting, nylon and polyester fabrics. The intention for this work is for it to travel - from studio to Faire to galleries to public park, as an alternative “web” of public participation.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement which takes place June 23 and 24, 2012. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
