Art 13, 3D Font Project

3D Font Project, 2014

I came up with this project last semester and assigned it for the first time this Fall in my 3D Design Concepts class. I was excited enough about it that I booked a gallery for mid-November and crossed my fingers. The projects turned out great! Here are some of them. Immense thanks to my two TAs in this class, Lynn Dau and Michal Niv.  And thanks to Marissa McPeak for taking these amazing photos of the show and sharing them with me and the class!

Art 13, 3D Concepts

 3D Concepts Final Project

"What the Twister Did."
This assignment was the invention of my friend and former professor, Elizabeth King, who assigned it many years ago, after reading a story of the same name in a 1984 issue of The New Yorker.

I tried out the assignment in my 3D Concepts class this semester.
Photos by Marissa McPeak and Shannon Wright.

Art 168, Woodworking

Tables Fall 2014!

We need a second light kit desperately! Every year these pictures are so dimly lit! Half the students had more exams right after ours and couldn't stay for the photo shoot.
