As the DeSaisset Museum at Santa Clara University approaches reopening for the university’s spring semester, it newest exhibition will also be coming along. And it will begin with a workshop.

The exhibition A Serving of Shapes: An Exploration in 3D Printing is a development in partnership with the community initiative from San Jose Museum of Art titled Around the Table. The works in this exhibition brings together art, history, and technology, all reflecting Silicon Valley’s past identity as an agricultural hub and present identity as a center of innovation. And while the actual exhibition does not begin until the end of the month, there will be workshops taking place from January 11th-18th from 1-4pm.

The workshop is where the public will be invited to take part in the innovative process of 3D printing, reflecting on the history of food in the Silicon region, or personal relationships, experiences, and associations with food, using the ideas as inspiration in creating digital 3D designs in Tinkercad, an easy-to-use tool for creating digital designs ready for 3D printing. After the week of workshops, a selection of designs will then be printed in 3D, using a plant-based filament that is 100% compostable and biogradable. The resulting sculptures will then be integrated into the exhibition for viewing at the DeSaisset Museum, which will also include installations of digitally designed and printed tablecloths created by artist Corinne Takara.

The exhibition A Serving of Shapes will be on view from January 31st to March 16th. Log on to www.scu.edu.desaisset for more information. You can also log on to www.tinkercad.com to learn more about the software program used to make the works for this exhibition.
