He has been collaborating with UHM Ceramics Professor Shawn Spangler for a while and the partnership is the focus of Re/Charting. The works in the show uses processes that include wheel-, mold-, and hand-forming, as well as digital 3D scanning, CNC prototyping, and 3D ceramics printing using a machine that Czibesz built. These two are a perfect fit for Bytemarks Cafe, a live, one-hour radio magazine that showcases creativity and ingenuity in Hawaii’s tech community.

WENDY KAWABATA – KCAD ARTPRIZE!
August 18, 2014

kawabata

Associate Professor Wendy Kawabata is among the selected artists featured in KCAD’s (Kendall College of Art and Design) Artprize “I AM: Money Matters”.

Going beyond conventional explorations of identity, I AM is a three-part exhibition series that deftly walks the tension between internal and external perceptions of self. The first installment, Money Matters—KCAD’s 2014 ArtPrize exhibition—raises bold questions about currency, consumption, and value in exploring their influence on human beings, our emotions, and our understanding of the world around us.
