Karen Wilkinson - The Art of Tinkering

The Art of Tinkering ($32.50) is an unprecedented celebration of what it means to tinker: to take things apart, explore tools and materials, and build wondrous, wild art that’s part science and part technology. Join 150+ makers as they share the stories behind their beautiful and bold work—and use the special conductive ink on the cover to do some tinkering yourself!

Brought to you by the Exploratorium’s Tinkering Studio.

As codirectors of the Tinkering Studio, Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich see their roles at the Exploratorium as advocates for making as a way of knowing. They believe deeply in studio pedagogy and the ability that we all have to think with our hands, and are curious about how people develop personal and unique understandings of the world for themselves. As undergraduates, both attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where Mike studied fine arts, filmmaking, and photography and Karen focused on environmental design. 

Before coming to the Exploratorium, they pursued graduate studies in education and technology at Harvard and MIT. Today, after more than twenty years working as a team to integrate science, art, and technology into curriculum for both in-school and out-of-school learning environments, they foster and facilitate informal learning spaces for making and tinkering, offering people a chance to connect to their own learning in a deeply personal way. They’ve worked with audiences as diverse as museum visitors, primary school students, Tibetan monks, prison inmates, and graduate school researchers, and are both happy to call the Tinkering Studio home, where they are able to work with a delightfully quirky group of artists, educators, and innovators. 

The Exploratorium—San Francisco’s renowned museum of science, art, and human perception—is dedicated to changing the way the world learns. Within the Exploratorium, the Tinkering Studio is a workshop in which science and technology become powerful tools for personal expression, and where visitors gather to participate in hands-on, mind-expanding activities and demonstrations.

The Tale of Hun Shim & Sun Mung ($19.95) begins as Mother Nature declares a grand new plan, devised to bring the world’s people closer together beyond their differences, to a very confused and skeptical crane. Hun Shim & Sun Mung, both born in Korea, are destined to travel to America where they will find their true parents according to Mother Nature’s design. With each trial and tribulation the girls face, the crane questions Mother Nature’s decision to have them move so far away to a family and community where so few people look like the girls. Each time the curious crane questions her decision Mother Nature reassures the crane that all of the difficulties the girls face will ultimately mold them into their true selves. As Mother Nature foretells, Hun Shim and Sun Mung grow to be great peacemakers, spreading charity throughout the world, which ultimately teaches the questioning crane to have faith in the ways of Nature.
