Data Clay: Digital Strategies for Parsing the Earth



Data Clay: Digital Strategies for Parsing the Earth

January 17, 2015–April 19, 2015

Guest Curator 

Joshua G. Stein and Del Harrow


This exhibition was accompanied by a concurrent symposium at CCA to discuss the future of these processes and technologies.

The Museum of Craft and Design’s exhibitions and programs are generously supported by the Windgate Foundation and Grants for the Arts.

Data Clay: Digital Strategies for Parsing the Earth is the first public exhibition to present the growing movement of architects, artists, and designers exploring the medium of ceramics coupled with digital technologies. Current interest in the potential transformation of basic materials like clay into complex hybrid systems has pushed ceramics to the forefront of innovation in the allied design fields. Data Clay: Digital Strategies for Parsing the Earth presents work by leading researchers and practitioners associated with the digital ceramic field through a range of diverse products and sculptural forms.
