This weekend we're building a life-size version of this scale model inside SFMOMA. DIY was invited to participate in the Museum's Countdown Celebration - kicking off SFMOMA's expansion and launch into off-site exhibitions and programs. So, in their theme of Time to Move, we've decided to build a small village powered by simple machines. Families will collaborate on transporting objects from one building in the village to another through systems of their own design. We'll be getting the build started today, and welcoming families to build with us tomorrow!
Update: The build was a success! Over 3,000 kids and adults helped us build a village in the SFMOMA Koret Education Center connected by pulleys, pipes, and rods for moving TIME. Of course, we made a time-lapse video of the entire build, and you can check that out here.
