Artist Ginger Brooks Takahashi will share her process and tips for preparing materials to work with a fabricator. Recently, Brooks Takahashi completed the Nine Mile Run Viewfinder, a series of portals for seeing, hearing, and smelling the underground waterways in Wilkinsburg, a borough adjacent to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Brooks Takahashi will explain how artists can work with fabricators to circumvent challenges and clearly articulate concepts. Please note that this session will be held on a Wednesday.
