ArtScience Museum will also be participating at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2014. You will expect to see works by designer Pradeesh Lal, creator Leon Lim and ArtScience Museum’s team of trained Docents who implement and execute activities and events for the Museum.
Pradeesh is a designer whose areas of focus include Architecture, Industrial Product Design, Precision Mechanical Design and Illustration. He was the Co-founder and Creative Director at Revente India, an India based firm working in diverse fields of Architecture, Design, Construction and Property holdings. In addition, he worked at Temasek Polytechnic as a Design Engineer at the Robotics and Automation Center, before co-founding Blokko, a start-up that is working on developing 3D printing platform targeted at kids.
His philosophy is to try making life less complicated with his expertise in the mentioned areas. Pradeesh finds romance in architecture because of the effect it has on people and the effect people have on it.
One of the hardest challenges is the search for your own creative confidence, for it can be elusive. However he advices to trust yourself to do what you want.
Pradeesh will be conducting a 3D printing activity including doodling with 3D pens and printers.
Leon Lim is a person who likes to create and make stuff. He enjoys creating both hardware and software, often trying to marry the two together. He messes around often with the Arduino platform which is what got him started with electronics again. His latest project includes creating wearable tech with Arduino Lilypad. Besides being in the maker community and using Adobe software for about 20 years, he also contributes to the Adobe user group in Singapore. The various hardware and software that he made for his company work to increase productivity and make life easier for the world.
Leon will be demonstrating “Touch & Print”, an assembly of art, science and technology. Visitors can expect to see a demonstration of PCB printing and etching and try their hands at doing it themselves. In addition, they can also design artwork that can be heat transferred to different materials such as T-shirt, fabric or metal.
Docent team, ArtScience Museum (Painting with Light: Cyanotypes)
ArtScience Museum’s team of trained Docents come from a range of interesting backgrounds, including art, design, education, engineering and social work. They implement a busy and varied range of activities and events with families, schools, adults and other groups on a daily basis at ArtScience Museum. As this includes photography, architecture, and whatever subjects are being presented through the touring exhibition programme, there is never a dull moment! The Docent team is therefore expert at absorbing information fast and presenting it clearly and in an accessible way for everyone.
The ArtScience Museum Docents will be running the Cyanotype workshop where visitors can learn about one of the oldest photographic processes.
Besides these makers, do look out for guest appearances by some makers throughout the two-day Singapore Mini Maker Faire.
