Come join Sustainable Magic at the STEAM Carnival this Friday-Sunday (Nov 6-8) at Pier 48 in San Francisco
The Sustainable Magic team is very excited to be a part of the upcoming STEAM Carnival -- a high-impact, high-voltage entertainment showcase fun for people of all ages.
What better way to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (aka STEAM) through the experience of a carnival? The Carnival will be filled with high-tech games, interactive installations, dynamic build zones, round the clock stage shows, lab demos, aerialists, artists, food, and more.
...And of course, the Magic Box!
Sustainable Magic will be there with the Magic Box, exhibiting the tools and capabilities of our high-tech traveling workshop and also spreading inspiration with our interactive robotic LED art.
So, please, join us: Come play Friday from 10am-5pm, and Saturday & Sunday from 10am-6pm at Pier 48 at AT&T Park.
Tickets available here and you can learn more about the event here.
We hope to see some familiar faces at the carnival. And if you're interested in helping out and volunteering some of your time please email us. There are perks! (And we can do this without your help!)
See you there!

About Sustainable Magic
Sustainable Magic is a growing collective of technology-inspired artists, makers, and educators founded by Sean Stevens and Ashley Newton and based in San Francisco. We make interactive art to share and inspire people to want to create, then teach them how using our high-tech traveling maker studio, the Magic Box; we also create immersive interactive art experiences for public and private events. We seek to inspire and empower people to step out of their comfort zone and to learn new skills and approaches to creating, problem solving, and collaborating using high tech tools like 3D printers and laser cutters, Arduino and robotics. We help people have the confidence and capability to change "What if?" into "Let's try!" And, for those with more experience, we help them take it to the next level.
Educational programming occurs in partnership with the 5th Annual Bay Area Science Festival. STEAM Carnival focuses on STEAM rather than STEM to emphasize the importance of art, highlighting its contribution to invention and innovation. Let’s inspire more creative thinkers and doers through playful, meaningful, immersive experiences!

Sustainable Magic was honored to be asked to share the Magic Flowers at the Flaming Lotus Girls' "Crossfire Synaptic Equinox" benefit. This will support installation of the FLG piece "SOMA" in San Francisco at Pier 14 on the Embarcadero.
It was an amazing event with great energy, art, music, people, and dancing - all in support of public art.
We can't wait to see SOMA at Pier 14!
Below are some pictures we snapped of the event and flowers!
We're excited to be a part of the SF Burning Man event this Saturday at Public Works SF.
