Science Pub: UNC Asheville’s STEAM Studio
ABOUT THIS EVENT
This presentation will follow the concept, timeline, execution, 84 hour installation and build team of WAKE, the largest public sculpture to ever be installed in Times Square. We will take you on a 364 day journey of a student-lead project that helped to fully realize major mechatronic and sculptural aspects of Mel Chin’s sculpture. We will follow the design and construction of WAKE at the UNC Asheville STEAM Studio which included a 2nd static component, a 60+ foot long sculpture in the form of a shipwreck. STEAM Studio is a 12,000 square foot collaborative cross-disciplinary making space founded in 2016 to support Mechatronics and Art at what can be the intersection of science, design thinking and craft.
