Space.City Presents James Carpenter
Space.City hosts light artist and designer James Carpenter as part of its Fall lecture series at Makerhaus in Fremont on Friday, October 25th at 7pm. The lecture is in collaboration with the Tacoma Museum of Glass, where Carpenter will be a Visiting Artist from October 25-28.
From the artist: The work of James Carpenter and his studio, James Carpenter Design Associates, is motivated by a deeply held agenda that seeks to merge ecological and aesthetic goals by exploring the natural world to manifest its material, structural and environmental beauty in the public realm. The work is a synthesis of creative ideas and technical expertise that straddles the fields of art, architecture and engineering, while forging creative implementations of innovative technologies. Light in transmission, reflection and refraction as it is perceived, is the work's initial inspiration and guiding principle. The result establishes and enriches the individual's relationship with light and other phenomena within the urban experience.
Carpenter studied architecture and sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design where he collaborated with Dale Chihuly, graduating in 1972. Carpenter actively exhibited light-based installation art works in the United States and Europe. Between 1972 and 1982 Carpenter also worked as a consultant at Corning Glass Works developing new glass materials aimed at potential architectural applications. Since establishing James Carpenter Design Associates (JCDA) in 1978, he has been integrating a synthesis of light into building structures. His studio is a collaborative environment encouraging an exchange of ideas between artists, environmental engineers and fabricators.
