Exploring the patterns created when art, science, and technology converge // The Murmuration Festival was a 3-day festival that brought together artists, musicians, innovators, scientists, and entrepreneurs to engage the public and share their work via conversations, talks, panel discussions, and musical performances. The festival took place in the Cortex Innovation District, a vibrant 200-acre innovation and technology hub in St. Louis.
I was approached to design and fabricate the event signage for the Murmuration Festival. When designing the signage, I knew I wanted to embrace the hands-on, maker approach the festival was centered around. To achieve this, I used raw materials including concrete and plywood. The signage was directly printed on plywood and the plywood was attached to oversized a-frames and concrete stands. I mixed and poured over 700 pounds of concrete by hand. I was able to utilize the TechShop St. Louis to build the signage. This project was rewarding not only because I was able to give back to my community, but it was also an opportunity to physically bring my designs to life.
