In addition to the group exhibition Rapid Premonitions, at  ArtSpace Gallery, Fresno City College is hosting a solo exhibition titled Additive Memories of the work of sculptor Laura West .  Laura West is our collaborator from California.  This is a collection of the best work completed by Laura West in the last few years that incorporates digital technology and 3D printing.  A majority of the work was completed in the last year alone.  Much of the work is a culmination of Laura’s spring 2010 sabbatical research which was conducted a University of Washington’s Solheim Lab, Arizona State University’s PRISM Lab and  FCC’s Applied Technology RP Lab ( she wishes special thanks to Mark Ganter, Dan Collins and Ron Cerkueira  for all their help)

This prolific body of work  demonstrates the speed and efficiency that a single sculptor can effectively use additive manufacturing technology to realize ideas and develop forms.  The sculptural work also showcases the beauty of the materials available to sculptors using powder based 3D printers.

Additive Memories runs along side the exhibit Rapid Premonitions (which reads much like a who’s who in rapid prototyping – both for artists and engineers).  It can be seen through December 9th 2010, with a reception on Thursday, December 2nd from 5-7pm in the ArtSpace Gallery at Fresno City College in California.
