ARTISTS // Leah Rosenberg is a Canadian transplant who has lived and worked out of San Francisco for the past decade. Spanning painting, sculpture, installation and pastry, Rosenberg’s work explores how color, form, flavor and arrangements affect human emotion. Using a process of accrual and layers, Rosenberg’s works personify how our experiences and memories accumulate, creating a piece with a vivid variety of color and texture.

Jeff Morrical is based out of Culver City. His love for Los Angeles’ culture of design and making has propelled him into a unique world of making and more precisely, folding. Morrical has a tenacious interest in the way in which things are put together. This exploration of assembly and structure informs his artwork as he continues to discover just how far you can push a sheet of paper.

Beakerhead Festival benchXpress Exhibit September 2014 / Calgary / AB / Canada
benchXpress begins its north american tour at Beakerhead

On the surface, Beakerhead looks like a week of spectacular fun every September. But it’s more than a schedule of mesmerizing events: it’s a time and place where engineers show their creative sides, and artists get technical, where science hits the street, and everyone gets ingenious. Leading with hands-on entertainment, Beakerhead advances the understanding of science and engineering as part of everyday life – through art and culture. It creates a world of collision and collaboration. Yes, indeed, sparks do fly when “things technical” meet “things creative”.

A&D MUSEUM EXHIBIT for S,M,L,XLa benchXpress Los Angeles, USA / June - September 2014
An Exhibition of Spatial Interventions Reflecting on the Inquiry of Scale  

Historically, Los Angeles as a city has been a site of inspiration and exploration for architects and designers alike. The city has been developed around and defined by a variety of large-scale urban planning projects as well as medium and smaller sized residential and public work including housing, product design projects. The city has nurtured experimental pursuits and critical inquiry and today it continues to expand in the contemporaneous city.

Projects are currently being developed at various scales all over L.A. from minuscule to monumental and everything in-between. Small, Medium, Large, Extra-large Los Angeles takes Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Maus seminal text as a departure point and more importantly as an organizing principle to examine the production and discourse of architecture and design within today's city of L.A. Bringing coherence to the body of work of an emergent group of Los Angeles-based designers that span across disciplines from architecture and graphics to digital media and sound art, to jewelry, landscape, lighting, product, and textile design; the show highlights the ways in which young practitioners are currently thinking and making in Los Angeles in addition to the impact on the present-day city and its future.

Harvard Graduate School of Design Manufacturing Serendipity: A part of Making the Future Series March 2015 / Satellite lecture

Making the future: from 3D printing to Innovation on Manufacturing, is an exploratory seminar that probes the theoretical and practical conditions of the innovation behind the process of making, straddling between 3D printing to industrial manufacturing, through the lens of an architect and designer. The class had the opportunity of attending a field trip to the SXSW Interactive (March 13 – 21, 2015), with Prof Wendy W Fok, and participate on applied research and hands on experimentation on clustered group exercises that innovate and explore 3D printing, and learn from case-studies on the future of work, production, and manufacturing within architecture and design.
