TOOL AMONG TOOLS
Digital Strategies Student Exhibition

Opening Reception: November 8, 2017 | 4:00-6:00pm

Curatorial Statement
New tools and processes provide opportunity for exploring uncharted territory and challenge our preconceived notions. Just as the pottery wheel revolutionized the possibilities and production of ceramic vessels digital media and fabrication tools have revolutionized the production of art and craft. The pottery wheel did not replace hand formed ceramics as a primary mode of production, though it allowed for advances in the development of forms and production methods. The Digital Strategies program at OCAC generates instruction, space, and time for makers to incorporate digital design and fabrication tools into their studio practice. This exhibition is a survey of select works produced in the first two years of the program and illustrates various approaches to employing digital strategies in the art and craft studio.
