Nels Shafer Gleams the Cube - 2018 SOFA Residency

Nels says the Department of Art has been a great place to explore because of the focus on learning by doing – he can experiment with CNC routers, laser cutters, and 3D printing, exploring art but also engineering without the constraints and prerequisites of other routes. He enjoys creating things that move, interact, or serve some function in addition to being aesthetically pleasing – taking courses in Experimental Media and 3D Modeling and Digital Fabrication only deepened his belief that art doesn’t have to be a static, pretty object you can’t touch as in traditional art museums. He prefers works that the audience can experience physically and conceptually at the same time, akin to those found in children’s or science museums.

Rose Von Muchow Curates Iron-Casting Women

Rose Von Muchow approached professor Tamsie Ringler about putting together a show to celebrate all of the strong women I had met through foundry. She was hesitant at first because she had no curatorial experience, but in talking with Tamsie, it soon became clear that she already possessed the relationships and tools necessary to successfully curate and install a show – she realized that all she needed to do was ask. The duo applied to the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), which provides some funding and structure for projects created by undergraduates with mentorship by faculty.

Jordan Rosenow Amid Structure

Jordan Rosenow Exhibition at the Rochester Center for Art

Amid Structure is a multimedia installation which looks closely at minimal gestures and the subtle intimacy between objects and architecture. Raw building materials, typically used to solidify permanent structures such as 2x4s, pipes, and steel are the foundation for both domestic and industrial spaces that house/shape the body and its experiences. These materials are created and used in mass quantities where uniformity is expected and they remain hidden in the interior of walls.
