We are very pleased to launch the Digital Fabrication Residency BETA session starting this September 2014. The residency is a pioneering project by Erik Guzman and Kari Britta Lorenson, both artists and educators, who after years of teaching digital technologies in a traditional academic setting, struck out to break not only the academic mold but the traditional residency mold as well. The residency utilizes collaborative tools used by industry and corporations to connect a team of invited speakers, and digital fabrication specialists with participating artists, designers around the globe. In most major cities and local communities, resources for digital fabrication are at the fingertips of artists and designers. We help connect the digital craft of making with a unique intensive incubator of innovators and professionals looking to expand their language of making.
