A message from Christopher Thompson, Curator in Residence:
We are excited to announce our Fall 2014 artist’s residency with Craig Winslow, in the atrium of the IDX Student Life Center. Working at the intersection of art, design and science Craig and his team will create a two story, interactive light installation. The artists will explore the possibilities of light, optics and algorithmic design by employing diverse materials and technologies including video projectors, reflective mylar film, fresnel lenses and Microsoft Kinect.
October 6-10, Monday-Wednesday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and Thursday-Friday 5:00 – 10:00 pm, IDX Student Life Center Atrium
Please let your students know. Class visits are welcome!
The goal of the artist residency program is to expose essential elements of the artist studio practice to the Champlain College community, that includes open-ended exploration, prototyping and iterative design. Student, faculty and staff are encouraged to stop by and chat with the artists as they work, lend a hand and share in the exploration. Class visits are welcome, please contact me for scheduling.
Craig Winslow is a Champlain adjunct faculty member and alumnus (’10), who has produced interactive light based installations for Bucket Feet in Soho NYC, Champlain College, Burlington’s Arthop and Shelburne’s Mini Maker Faire. His team includes Champlain graphic design student Zachary Sittler (’15) and a recent graduate of the UVM Engineer Masters program (’14) Justin Kuzima.
