Gabriella Levine - VFL Artist in Residence - Final Presentation
5:00pm Friday, February 21st Visible Futures Lab 132 West 21st Street, 7th Floor New York, NY 10011
Join us as Gabriella Levine presents her work and progress during her 7-week residency with the Visible Futures Lab. While at VFL, Levine continued her development of Snell, a series of snake-like robots. She explored new methods of fabrication using custom 3D printed joints, developed a more easily replicable assembly process, and ventured into new methods of pneumatic actuation. Levine will discuss the concepts behind Sneel and the inspiration she finds in exploring biomimetic form and motion. She will also explain her fabrication methods and the electronic prototyping techniques she uses to develop modular platforms for gathering remote environmental data.
The Visible Futures Lab hosts a new Artist in Residence every 7-weeks. Residents are selected from divers fields including industrial design, performing arts, robotics, and conceptual arts. During their time at the VFL, residents research and develop projects that explore and expand the philosophy of purposeful and extensible art and design.
