ACADIA@ACSA Digital Aptitudes | Synthetic Ecologies Workshop
29 February - 01 March
Sign up for the ACADIA@ACSA Digital Aptitudes | Synthetic Ecologies Workshop
Sponsored by ACSA, ACADIA, Objet, and MIT
This two-day intensive workshop will provide faculty and advanced graduate students the opportunity to hone their digital and prototyping skills. Working at the Objet Headquarters and on the MIT campus with a team of expert consultants, each participant will experiment with a range of digital tools to design a project that negotiates the material relationships between the component (part) and the network (whole). Participants will generate and fabricate a unique component that combines with others to create a larger artifact that will be situated within a particular field condition. The results of the workshop will be showcased at the Boston Park Plaza and formally presented during the100th ACSA Annual Meeting.
