artlab Artist Talk: Norwood Viviano

Friday, May 31, 5:30 PM

 

Get a first-hand look into Norwood Viviano’s work in this intimate discussion.

Utilizing digital 3D computer modeling and printing technology in tandem with glass blowing and casting processes, Viviano creates work depicting population shifts tied to the dynamic between industry and community. Manufacturing Cities visually models how populations move and are modified as a result of industry, creating a 3D lens to view that which is invisible or forgotten. Viviano’s use of blown glass forms and vinyl cut drawings are micro-models of macro changes at the regional, national, and international level.
