STUDIO: Line Meeting Schedule!

Hello All,

This week you will have a 10 minute individual crit of your final project with the faculty. On Tuesday at 10 am we will gather for a group meeting. During the other times, please continue to work on your project and talk to others in the class for advice and suggestions. Below is the schedule. Please set up your work this evening or before meetings start, so that there is not a lot of noise in the studio while crits are going on. You had some wonderful ideas last week… we are looking forward to seeing them come into reality!

Since graduating from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 1998, her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, China and Mexico. She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces.
