Space to create: SYN Shop relocates to Henderson | Las Vegas Review-Journal

People in the Las Vegas Valley maker community are often too busy working on their projects to notice that there are others in the area who are engaged in similar efforts and can lend a hand, according to members of a local hackerspace called the SYN Shop.

Behind a Photo Project: Maker Tech helps create an exhibit

I’m looking forward to the upcoming Las Vegas Maker Faire in February. It’s a great opportunity to talk with other Makers about their projects. And to share mine: Over the past several years I’ve experimented with capturing low light landscapes. (My latest exhibit, Aesthetic Evidence, runs Dec 3 to Jan 28 at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery in Las Vegas.)

Photographers have long created and modified their equipment, from chemical developing, to triggering and flash systems, to balloons, kites, and quadcopters for carrying their cameras aloft. My own work uses technology I’ve created and systems developed by Makers across the US.

For example, one of my recent photos on exhibit show 1953 atomic test data that I light painted in remote Nevada, near the location of the original test. I wanted to add audio to the exhibit—ambient sounds from the location, original test blast recordings, and an explanation of the techniques and topic. To do this, I built a listening station out of recycled materials including a broken tripod, discarded office phones, and an ammunition case. Inside the case, a model railroad audio system plays ambient sound and four audio tracks in response to buttons pressed by exhibit viewers.

You can explore my entire exhibit, including the audio listening station, at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery from Dec. 3 to Jan. 28. I’m giving a presentation on December 3 at 7 pm about the techniques and ideas behind this project. More info is at kilker.com. I hope to meet other Makers there.
