Social in the Studio with Michelle Kasprzak

The first in IA's new "Social in the Studio" series invites you to come and work on projects alongside an artist in our community, because making together is both more fun and more critical. Or as Matt Ratto has said, "Critical making emphasizes the shared acts of making rather than the evocative object. The final prototypes are not intended to be displayed and to speak for themselves. Instead, they are considered a means to an end, and achieve value though the act of shared construction, joint conversation, and reflection.”
