Iron Summer Session 5

IRON SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Shingo Furukawa
It Moves!

This workshop will be a basic introduction to kinetic sculpture: it’s easy! Students will learn the fundamental principles of mechanical movement and use simple components to create sculptures that move. We’ll cover basic fabrication and welding, but this will not be a technique-oriented workshop. Instead we’ll explore movement as a tool for communicating ideas. All levels. 

Studio technician and occasional lecturer at University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth; exhibitions: Monique Rancourt Artisan Gallery (MA), Metalwerx (MA), Six Years Smitten (NM, NC, CA), I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Peace Now! (NC, MA), Rhode Island I.M.A.G.I.N.E.s.
