Indie Incubator: From Poem to Print Exhibit
Date: February 16, 2018
Featuring the art of four Ferris and Kendall colleges and disciplines, Indie Incubator: From Poem to 3D Print takes viewers on a journey from the spark of artistic inspiration to final art product. Assistant Professor Dr. Deirdre Fagan’s Literature 231H students led this collaboration with the artistic spark. Inspired by the current Beyond theme, initiated through the Office of International Education, the writing students drafted poems reflecting on four types of conflict: internal, interpersonal, social, and existential. These poems were then sent to Full Professor Patricia Constantine’s Illustration Life Drawing class at Kendall College of Art & Design. There, students envisioned the voice of the poem and rendered two dimensional models. The illustrations were then sent to Mel Danes and Cari Mayle Instructors from the Digital Animation & Design program. Their students selected the best of the illustrations and worked to model them three dimensionally. The 3D models were printed by Danes and Luke Hedman Instructor from the College of Engineering Technology.
