Form Finding for the 21rst century
William Paterson University workshop and residency
June 3, 2021- June 17, 2021
Imagine being in a group of like-minded creatives working in proximity to create sculpture carved by robot but finished by your hand? We seek to bring together artists, sculptors, designers, architects, and curators to explore robot carving in wood. Working around other artists can inspire and motivate as you discover ideas in a speculative, constructive context. It’s an opportunity to evolve new ideas as well as work with new technologies. That's the spirit and tone that Sculpture X: Form Finding for the 21st Century seeks to provide.
William Paterson University Center for New Art is now offering a 2 week workshop from June 3, 2021- June 17, 2021 for carving a sculpture (from a wooden block) by robot and then further designing it by hand.
