SXSW is in FULL swing and while I've only scratched the surface of events and happenings (all without a badge!), I'm already inspired by the incredible creativty.
Usually SXSW is associated with music, film and digital but I'm always amazed at the artistry that goes into the little details. Here's a round-up of some the eye-candy that has caught my attention so far:
The glow-in-the-dark cotton candy (pictured above) was from Fader Fort's opening party last night. I work @ Dell (a sponsor this year) so I was so excited to receive an invitation to this party. Our team did an AMAZING job with all the little details within the Dell area at Fader, including this incredible up-cycle art installation made from old key board parts . . .
SXSW Create Recap . . .
Last weekend, Macy, me and The Hubbs, went to SXSW Create and talk about taking arts and crafts to another level - WOW! Here's some highlights . . .
3D character creation at the AutoDesk booth - In this pic, she's creating her character via an app.
From the app, they are able to print characters in 3D! Macy didn't actually get to print her own character, but here's an example of other characters being made in the MakerBot ...
She did get a print-out of her character, as well as an example of the types of creatures the 3D printer can make ...
Here's the finished project (the threads act as a conductor to turn the light on) . . .
And here's another piece of eye-candy for you that was featured in front of the SXSW Create tent - Plastic Storm Sculpture by local Austin artist George Sabra I loved standing under it and looking up. Really an amazing piece . . .
It's beautiful on its own, but even more cool that it's made from recycled plastic materials . . .
And that's a wrap (for now)! I'll be headed back out to Fader later this week and hope to hit a few more things, so I'll be sure and share.
Are you at SXSW this week? There's still time to get to Austin!!
