Cameron Visiting Artist Lecture: Jake Winiski
Tuesday, February 25th
4:30 in JHN 304, Johnson Building
Jake Winiski is an artist on the research and design team for rapidly expanding company Ecovative Design, where fungi is transformed into rigid molded materials. Ecovative is working to replace styrofoam with environmentally friendly mycelia packaging. In his own work, Winiski explores the image as a shared space between the fabrication of the model, it’s expansion and metamorphosis behind the window of the photograph. His mixed media images underscore the free-associative manner in which internal fantasy can project itself into the world.
