I write these typically short posts on a range of subjects related to art, design, digital fabrication, culture, and teaching.

I am thrilled to be featured in "Tracing the Line", a new book documenting the use of pen plotters and drawing machines as an integral part of contemporary generative and digital art production. The work of 100 international artists is showcased.

An article exploring 3D Printing research at Penn State University, including my work with clay/ceramic extrusion printing and printer design.

I contributed an article for this edition of the magazine. Excerpt: "As clay describes the places it has been, maybe we can come to agree that clay can do anything, is comfortable in the context of craft, art, and design, yet also in engineering, material science, and computation. And if clay can move this fluidly, perhaps we can exhibit more fluidity as well—as artists, craftspeople, designers, engineers. And where would we move to, if we were to slip between art and science and computation and design? We might find ourselves in a hybrid space—part studio, part laboratory, working across, among, or against disciplinary boundaries."

I contributed an article "Perfecting Porcelain Prints" to Make Magazine in 2021. Description from the table of contents:

"Page 52, Clay-based printers can make much more than vases and pottery. Here’s how to get started."


Questions by Emily Burns

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background and how you became interested in becoming an artist? What were some early influences? Any stories that stand out in your mind?
A: If we met in elementary school I would have told you I wanted to be an artist. I was always drawing as a kid, and I guess I am always drawing now . . .


The 3D Additivist Cookbook, devised and edited by Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke, is a free compendium of imaginative, provocative works from over 100 world-leading artists, activists and theorists. The 3D Additivist Cookbook contains 3D .obj and .stl files, critical and fictional texts, templates, recipes, (im)practical designs and methodologies for living in this most contradictory of times.
