Fittingly titled Open Sky, is:
…an abstract hunk of concrete clad in panels of mirror-polished stainless steel laid at a 43 degree angle… as you walk through its curved interior, the Renaissance architecture dissolves, fragmenting out into sandy-color snippets and clear blue sky. Somehow, with the thoughtful placement of 34 mirrored panels (a collaboration with fabrication studio UAP) Smith has nudged people to look up and around—to reexamine their environment. In doing so, he’s transformed a palazzo nestled in busy Milan into an environment with middle-of-the-desert calm.

Innovative ways of looking at new technologies often come from unexpected places…
Industrial robotic equipment can be used for more than mass-manufacturing — it can also be used to create art, art which goes beyond the visual world and into one of data. Artists who work with robots give us new ways to see these technologies as tools; mediums of expression; and machines for art.
Join Design Robotics Professor Jonathan Roberts, Dr Jared Donovan and Dr Glenda Amayo Caldwell in our latest webinar as we discover innovative ways of looking at new technologies and their impact on creative expression.
