Brooklyn-based artist Laura Splan will present her sculptures and new media projects that employ a variety of digital tools. Splan's conceptually based studio practice mines the narrative implications of technologies such as Arduino, Processing, computerized machine embroidery, and 3D printing. The artist will explain the intersections of art, science and technology in her conceptually based studio practice. She will present several digital fabrication and data-driven projects including "Doilies" (computerized machine embroidered lace), "Host" (3D printed sculptures stained with blood), and "Manifest" (Arduino EMG data-driven forms). There will be a brief Q&A at the end of the presentation.
