Organized by UNC Asheville Professors Rebecca Bruce, Jackson Martin, Susan Reiser and Brent Skidmore. The exhibition documents a collaborative project between courses, CSCI 173: Creative Fabrication, ART 346/347/446: Sculpture II/III/IV and ART 374: Contemporary Sculpture Methods. With the theme of Assistive Technology, student pairs modeled an innovative device on the computer. These designs were then 3D printed with the help of Engineering Technician, Sara Sanders and prepared for bronze/aluminum casting with the help of Sculpture Technician, Matt West. The exhibition includes designs from student pairs, cast bronze/cast aluminum parts, and additional mixed-media elements. Student pairs are listed below:
