Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore and Willem de Kooning Academie (WdKA) in Rotterdam co-teach “Unravel the Code”, a recurring digital fabrication course. The course is a a multi-disciplinary and multi-institution exploration of contemporary digital fabrication processes rooted in a study of traditional craft practices. Students participate in the class on both sides of the ocean, visit each other’s cities, and mount exhibits of their work. This fall, the MICA students visited the city of Rotterdam and Dutch Design Week in the city of Eindhoven.
This exhibition features the works created by Baltimore students in fall 2019. Students will present their final work showcasing their research and independent projects, drawing on traditional crafts to explore emerging technologies of making. Refreshments will be served.
