  • Fall 2013 studio: Non-Mechanical Repetition

    Last quarter (fall) I took a topic studio with Sarah Lorenzen entitled:

    "Non-Mechanical Repetition"

    We began by exploring issues of 2d represetation and repetition while studying artwork that dealt with processes of fabrication and craft. The quarter was split into two parts, one was the design of a full scale pavilion, and the other was the fabrication of a mock-up installation in the VDL house.

    In the design of these full-scale mockups (approx. 10ft x 8ft) for a temporary outdoor pavilion competition

    students were asked to consider formal issues such as patterning and ornamentation;

    tectonic strategies such as assemblage of parts and modular systems;

    and to accentuate the distortions that occur when going between digital design tools and analog fabrication methods.

  • Surface Learning

    I remember last summer when I was talking to one of my mother’s friends about her son.  She told me that his middle school provides all the students with ipads and requires them to use it as the primary learning device. He said that they rarely take notes with pencil and paper anymore...
