Teaching Workshop "Between Matter, Time, & Energy" at Syracuse University

Workshop Objectives:

Students will take a form they have developed in the studio and transform it into a living object.  Often forms are conceived and created in the vacuum of software and deployed through the precise mechanical arms of machining.  The world that these designs are deployed into are never so simple- the living, entropic forces that disobediently mold, stain, and contaminate are inherent in the fabric of any site.   Layering growth, decay, (and thereby time) into the formal dimension, we will investigate the operation of co-creation within different processes.  This exercise will be a launching point into taking into account a building as a temporal, living entity.
