Campus Collisions – Bryan Cera: Computation and Clay

Wednesday, September 18 - 1:00 PM

1-2pm

Gallery Hall, TFDL

Bryan Cera, Assistant Professor in Object Making and Emergent Technologies at the Alberta University of the Arts, will present three years of research in Computation and Clay. Pairing custom-built robots driven by generative algorithms with traditional materials and methodologies for building ceramic vessels and structures, Cera has discovered a innovative, versatile, and environmentally friendly studio practice that combines cutting edge computational tools with some of the most ‘primitive’ object-making technologies known to man.
