Laurie Frick is an artist whose work examines technology, personal data, pattern fluency and portraiture.
Thursday, Feb 27 | 6–7:30PM
In her installations, drawings, and small works, artist Laurie Frick experiments with how art and technology will change how we will consume the mass of data increasingly captured about us. Rather than hide, she copes by imagining a future where personal data meld into our individual identity.
Drawn to combine tactile tech and familiar materials, she builds her art as a more likely alternative to digital media. Laurie is a sought-after speaker and artist. We are looking forward to sharing her process and her vision.
WORKSHOP: Hand-Cut Collage Using Data
Friday–Saturday, Feb 28–29 | 10AM–4PM
How do you go about using data, even personal data, to create an abstract patterned collage with hand-cut, hand-dyed materials? We’ll work through each step in the process, using memory and tracking to gather location data and create a rough sketch to follow. We’ll discuss color mapping and select a color palette based on time and place. Using cotton paper, we’ll use hot-water color dyes to create some of the natural color materials for the collage. Your final collage will be both personal and a new type of data portrait in hand-dyed, cut paper collage.
This special event is part of ASLD’s Visiting Artist Series to bring guest artists to Denver and offer master classes to our community. We are grateful for the generous support from the Olson-Vander Heyden Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn more about the VISITING ARTIST SERIES.
