Ohio Star: Idea Foundry


72″ x 48″

For the past 10 years, the Idea Foundry has grown into one of the largest maker spaces in the country.  It’s a really fantastic space which helped to renew interest in the Franklinton neighborhood.  Inside, you can find metal and woodworking tools, 3d printers and laser cutters, and now a large coworking space on the upper level.  I took this photo in the center of the coworking space, which features a large staircase that serves as seating for events and presentations.

I love the way the bright wood in the beams contrasts with both the darker wood in the building and the bright light streaming through the windows.  The angles of the rows of seating, some of which include a pop or red, creates a repeating pattern that evolves across the photoquilt.
