Bend, twist, light, sculpt and animate a new version of the holiday season with workshops, demos, artist installations and more. ReMake the Holidays is a response to increased consumption and waste during the holiday season and an attempt to give people pause, inspiration and options to do things differently, while having fun! This year’s event will focus on a different recyclable material each day. Most activities are free with NYSCI admission; some projects have a small materials fee.
December 27: Plastic Projects (lanterns, holiday light hacking and jump ropes)
December 28: Paper Projects (origami, lanterns and puppets)
December 29: Fabric Projects (sewing, doll-making and creature creations)
December 30: Metal and Glass Projects (holiday light hacking, lanterns and doll-making)
NYSCI’s favorite ice sculptor, Bill Bywater will use his ice sculpting skills to highlight endangered wildlife, while providing audience members with an on-going demonstration of ice sculpting tools and techniques.
New this year is the Climate Change Confessional, a collaboration with the Adaptors, a project of SoundVision Productions. The Climate Change Confessional is a booth where visitors can call a phone number and confess that thing they’re doing — or failing to do — that makes them feel guilty in the face of climate change. A scientist on the other end of the line will offer feedback and guidance for ways to move forward in a more sustainable way. Confessions will be recorded and some of them will be highlighted on the Adaptors new podcast and website.
ReMake Late: December 30, 5 – 8 pm
Kids shouldn’t have all the fun this holiday season! ReMake activities and workshops will continue into the evening on December 30 so adults can also join the making festival.
