Fabricated Landscapes: Digital and Analog
In this exploratory workshop, students collage materials including industrial and repurposed materials into artworks that integrate form and content using both analog and digital fabrication methods. Beginning with a research-based methodology for making, we search for unique opportunities that each material and process can contribute as we synthesize and construct individualized forms. Fabricating with a wide range of media and combining traditional and digital equipment, we learn material-sensitive techniques for connecting, securing, and manipulating objects imbued with memory into personal vistas. As vistas just barely out of reach and simultaneously enveloping every moment, constructed landscapes can be simultaneously awe-inspiring and mundane.
