EIGERlab announces TCFA student residencies
Technical Center for the Arts at EIGERlab (TCFA) Director Dr. Harry Spell has announced the recipients of the TCFA student residency for 2011. University of Oregon product design student Matt Kennedy and University of Illinois-Springfield sculpture student Joel Walter will utilize the EIGERlab’s staff time and talents and the rapid prototyping equipment to produce creative projects during their residency, July 18-28.
The students will give a public lecture describing their work and sharing information about EIGERlab’s resources from 2 to 5 p.m., Thursday, July 28. Visitors will be able to speak with residents, faculty sponsors from both the University of Illinois and Oregon, and the director of the EIGERlab’s TFCA.
The student residency is an outgrowth of work completed at EIGERlab in 2010 by artistic collaborators Brian Gillis, assistant professor of art at the University of Oregon, and Mike Miller, chairman and associate professor of visual arts at the University of Illinois-Springfield. The two artists have worked as a team since 2006, creating installations and objects that question notions of technological utopia, progress and the inability of science in contemporary culture, while exploring the historical memory of particular sites.
