Tension Loop

3-D printed PLA, polypropylene rope, 2018, 12"w x 16"h x 12"d

My work examines the relationship between art, design and craft by using digital fabrication alongside traditional, analog processes. I create objects that incite conversation about their materiality and question the relevance of authorship in perceived values of digitally manufactured objects. The 3-D printed lattice structures in Tension Loop are dependent on a hand-woven connection to bind the pieces together, alluding to digital fabrication’s dependence on a human component.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
