The Hack Factory is going to be at Northern Spark this year! We have some amazing Artists creating some super cool projects! We also ran a fund raiser for the Hack Factory on Indiegogo to support these projects. That ended last week, but you can still put in an order for T-Shirts or LED throwies here. Make sure to watch WCCO Friday morning @5:10&6:10am, as they Interviewed us at the Hack Factory talking about our Northern Spark projects.
Northern Spark is an over night art festival from dusk to dawn on June 8th 2013. It’s free and open to the public, and is a completely walkable festival this year in the Lowertown part of Downtown Saint Paul.
Riley Harrison is bringing his Foshaybuchet project, and will be hurling illuminated projectiles down range, at large wall of steel! We did a test launch of these this week, and they look like glowing fireworks!
David Bryan, Cali Mastny, and Aaron Prust are doing Steel, Exquisite Corpse of. This will be a steel sculpture created by three artist over the course of the night, where each artist does not know what the section before or after looks like until the entire sculpture is brought together towards the wee morning hours. Below is a sample we created to test out the process.
David Bryan is also bringing Strange Attractor to the festival, a wall of glowing lights that will mimic the phase synchronization of fireflies in nature.
