Skill, developed through material exploration, delivers freedom from the limitations of technique. Working through exciting new possibilities, the elements of risk and transformation are among the reasons why I make at all.

Golley will discuss how she employs bi-directional fabrication, a circular process wherein traditional ceramic materials and techniques are blended with emergent digital technologies to reveal new opportunities. She will discuss how such systems offer a means by which to expand the boundaries of practices, linking material traditions with the digitally immaterial.
