Light Box Workshop

Papercutting is an ancient art, practiced throughout the world, but its popularity has just begun to grow in the United States. In this two-session workshop, you will learn the basics of knife cutting from accomplished papercutter and visual artist Melanie Kehoss. Students will then apply that skill to creating a small table-top light box. Most materials will be provided; students only need to bring a pen, (Xacto) knife, self-healing mat, and ruler.

NO GRIDS NO MASTERS: a Post-Cartesian Experiment is an exploration and contestation of the grid and the structured set of worldviews that are embedded in it. Incorporating digital and traditional weaving, sculpture, found objects, and transformed cast materials, the installation reflects the artist’s intense engagement with material.
