Texas Woman’s University
April 20-21, 2018
The 2018 North Texas Digital Fabrication Symposium will be hosted at Texas Woman’s University April 20th-21st, 2018. Artists, researchers, makers and students will come together at TWU to discuss digital fabrication, its practice, pedagogy and curation. The theme, "Humanizing the Digital" inspired fascinating proposals from artists and researchers working with digital fabrication in a variety of applications.
The symposium events will include panel discussions of 5-6 panelists organized around three sub-themes: "Embodiment & Technology," "Adaptation & Play," and "Process & Practice." Six workshops, scheduled each afternoon of the symposium, give participants hands-on application and learning with digital fabrication tools.
TWU will also host a corresponding Digital Fabrication Exhibition including works by some of the artists and presenters from the symposium. The artworks represent a broad spectrum of practice within the wide world of digital fabrication applications: physical, speculative and functional.
