AUTODESK resident artist and educator Stefanie Pender will deliver a lecture on Embodied Automation in the Stuckeman School Jury Space on Wednesday, February 21, at 6:00p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Stefanie Pender designs digital workflows that integrate embodied craft knowledge into automated processes. Her background in traditional craft techniques informs her approach to designing for digital fabrication strategies. During her artist residency at AUTODESK's Pier 9 facility, she fabricated a filament deposition modeling process that prints glass filament.
Pender is currently a BUILD Space Supervisor in Boston, where she supports teams and individuals from Autodesk as well as industry, practice, and academia for projects and research in digital fabrication, construction automation, building materials and systems, and other forward-looking topics. The new Autodesk Boston BUILD Space (Building, Innovation, Learning, and Design) is a research and development workshop for innovation and collaboration in the future of making things for the building industry.
