    Laura Splan of Brooklyn, NY, will be joining the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency the week of February 20th. Laura, who received her MFA at Mills College in Oakland, California, explores intersections of art, science, technology, and craft in her work. In recent work, she has been using her own body to generate bio-data to be used in the production of sculptures and images, a project that has manifested itself in a variety of materials and formats including computerized jacquard woven tapestries and 3D printed sculptures.

    Throughout her residency, Laura intends to create computer generated animated weavings from bio-data collected via Arduino microcontrollers. The waveforms generated from this data will be used in AfterEffects and other software with animation, sound, parenting, and expressions to create animated weavings that visualize and embody the experiences from which they were derived.

    The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

    Alfred, New York-Asians in America and the Institute for Culture Unity (ICU) will present the "Cultural Bowl," a community-based charity event that aims to raise funds for local shelters: New Hope Animal Shelter and Alfred Housing Committee, on Friday, February 24th from 12-4p.m. located in Powell Campus Center’s Knight Club.

Bowls will have a suggested price of $10, which will include food donated by community members.

    Asians in America and the ICU are asking those the community to help them make this event as successful as possible by attending the event to help raise funds for these charities. The most helpful way to participate is by donating a signature dish that represents who they are as a familial or cultural identity.

    Alfred University students, Nermin Moustafa, Senior; Jessica Cheng, Junior; Takumi Morozumi along with the guidance of Nick Labate, former Alfred University student and founder of Empty Bowls, hope this event can not only bring the community together but also to give back to our local organizations.
