The Innovation Co-Lab is excited to announce its first-ever Artist Residency with multi-disciplinary sculptor and fabricator Zak Weinberg, April 5-12, 2019. Through the alter-ego Grebniew Kaz, a relationship has been forged with a laser cutter, creating and exhibiting machine fabricated wood relief sculptures. Together, they draw inspiration from the visual dialect of architecture, cultural patterns, historic symbolism and motif; utilizing digital precision techniques to transmute future artifacts, envisioning a modern identity for global unification.
During his week-long residency at the Innovation Co-Lab, Zak will be leading workshops, teaching students about laser fabrication, sharing his process, and designing a new piece of art to be hung in the Co-Lab Studio. Members of the Duke Community can visit our Studios throughout the week to observe and work together with Zak on this project.
On Monday, meet the artist and enjoy a presentation on creative process and influence, followed by opportunities for Q&A and casual discussion.
