PIE is “Playful Invention and Exploration” – or integrating engineering with artistic expression. Their web page is a treasure chest for any maker.

New Light Traces

Noel came in for a Light Traces session this weekend. After experimenting with light traces for a long time I was excited to work with a POI artist! He is also a math teacher and I learned to know him through our hands-on teacher workshops here at the Explo.

Have a look at the first pictures we did (on flickr). The theme is “geometry” – which is also the topic of the exhibits I am currently working on. Click on the picture to see more samples and instructions:
