There are many joys to having artists visit onsite for an intensive 3 days of making. The two meetings online prior to the visit really help us all to figure out our strategy for how to make the most of the days onsite. Artist Dean Ebben was a resident in our 2016 Summer program who brought insatiable curiosity and ideas to explore a wide range of technologies. There were many delightful surprises such as his background in paper making and having brought some handmade paper that we used on our plotter to transfer some images from his drawings into a series of works. Check out Dean's blog on his experiences at DFR studios.
