About the sponsor - Synecdoche Design Studio:

Synecdoche is a design/make architecture studio with offices in Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan.. The office explores how design can impact at multiple scales of architecture for simultaneous design solutions. As a small practice we work in a fast and nimble environment as an effective production technique. Architecture creates opportunities to work in multiple scales within the same discipline. Our belief is that tangibles and experiences are simultaneous design problems. We work to create a studio for design models that work with personalities, business, culture,  lifestyle and play.

About FoolMoon:

FoolMoon is the nighttime kick-off event to the FOOL-ish weekend. In the Ann Arbor Farmers Market in Kerrytown, everyone and anyone is invited to gather in the streets to shake off those cold gray winters. The skyline will be filled with luminaries, interactive installations, laser shows, a beer tent, DJ’s raised into the air, and live dance performances. A parade of homemade luminaries will move through Downtown Ann Arbor and finish at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market. This year’s theme will be a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
