Appearing: Saturday, Sunday
Ryan Nagata is an artist in Los Angeles. After several years of working in Hollywood as a director and prop and costume fabricator, he transitioned full-time into making highly accurate replicas of historic spacesuits. His suits have been featured in TV, movies, museums, and print ads. The process of replicating spacesuits has given him unique insight into their construction so he now works with actual aerospace companies to develop new suits.
Saturday talk, Panels
Creating The Improbable.
We believe in every single person’s ability to create the improbable and to learn about themselves and the world in the process. Like any artifact worth searching for, sometimes all it takes is a bit of digging in the right place to find your unique ability. We seek to aid in this endeavor.
At SiliCon with Adam Savage, our goal is to bring together people who have long histories of creating, from filmmakers and actors, to artists, authors, engineers, scientists, technologists, and makers to share their creativity and enthusiasm. We know that the sum of all this interaction is greater than its individual parts. We celebrate the spark we get when we meet new people, surmount new challenges, exult and share with each other.
