Shawn Silverman

Shawn, an interactive LED artist and educator, will be returning to Speak at GlowCon 2017! Shawn’s badass projects include the software, electronics, and interactivity on the Love Potion Amphora Art Car, and a light-art display which remains a main fixture on the Google Mountain View Campus.

Shawn will be giving a LED Talk on the “Playa System Integrators” project which enables art pieces to talk to one another.


Shawn gave two brilliant talks last year:

“Chromatic Coordination”  https://goo.gl/W3iug3

Beginner’s poi class, DIY workshops, and much more!

Bliplace Workshop

Maker-artist Tenaya Hurst will be bringing kits for everyone to make their own Bliplace, a blinky light jewelry piece that reacts to the beat of music.  It’s enjoyable to solder your own, then wear it as a necklace or earrings AT GlowCon!  Later, use a 3D printer or other maker tools to frame your Bliplace in a custom plastic, acrylic, or wood design.  Soldering takes 7 steps, beginners are welcome.  Work at your own pace with Tenaya’s direction and easy-to-follow printed instructions.  At GlowCon, you’ll see your fellow Bliplace makers in the crowd and everyone’s jewelry will pulse with the great music provided by the DJs!  Music – Art – LEDs!
