Artist In Residency Workshop with Rob Swainston
Partnership with The Innovation Co-Lab
A collaboration between The Innovation Co-Lab and Duke Arts brings Artist Rob Swainston in residence at the Rubenstein Arts Center. Join us for this in-depth workshop where we’ll explore Swainston’s artistic practice and get hands-on with the tools and methods he uses to produce large scale prints. Rob will demonstrate how to utilize photoshop channels to plan multi-color prints, as well as how to build toolpaths and cut-files to interface with the ShopBot CNC.
Rob’s practice combines digitial processes with tradtional printmaking techniques in works that span painting, sculpture, video and installation. During the residency, Rob will engage the Duke community, centering the Innovation Co-Lab Studio at the Ruby with a number of projects and demonstrations. Through this project, Rob will demonstrate how the ShopBot Computer Numeric Controller (CNC) router at the Innovation Co-Lab Studio at the Ruby can be employed to make relief prints. Beyond this workshop, members of the Duke Community are invited to join Rob during his week at the Ruby to assist and observe his work, as well as join an Artist Talk at the Ruby on Tuesday, March 7 at 5pm.
