This is a workshop that me and Monika Wittig - LaN we are dreaming and thinking of doing since last year. Now we have the right chance to do it and I hope some (many) of you are interested to join us.
Boulder Colorado USA > Great Sand Dunes National Park > Denver
A ten day migrating summer workshop ultimately exploring digital design & fabrication of structures influenced by live forces– primarily fluid associations between wind & sand & resultant land formations. Can we quantify analyze and engage with the enormous migrating land masses of the great sand dunes national park in Southern Colorado.
Early days in boulder center around outdoor field studies introducing topics of complex geometries and data flows of analog-to- digital mediums. Internationally renown research site visits will compliment these sessions.
Denver provides us with cnc fabrication possibilities @ club workshop denver. Participants will become familiar with lasercutting / cnc routing & 3d printing. A prototype will be fabricated for our live sand studies in the desert.
Some of nature's most dramatic forms will be at our disposal as we migrate south to the great sands national park. LaN is curating a series of stopping points en route. Current plans include reaching just beyond great sands desert to visit one of the nation's largest adobe brick manufacturers.
Workshop finale in Boulder, Colorado ~ pm saturday august 19th ~ at a local public event of global proportions… entrepreneurial in spirit.
