The participant in this workshop will be taken through the creative stages behind the artist's key work Stranger Visions, which consists of a series of sculpture-portraits made following the analysis of genetic material collected in public spaces. The work, whichdraws on work methods used in fundamental science and the information gathering field, seeks to highlight current social issues such as DNA data-banking. Participants will generate and 3D print miniature portraits based on their own interpretation and analyses of genetic data we find together online. No prior technical experience necessary. 

With the participation of Bricobio.

Founded in 1999, Turbine is a pedagogical creation centre which develops spaces for experimentation in conjunction with current practices in art and pedagogy. Always on the lookout for new tendencies and approaches in both pedagogy and current art, in 2012 the Centre Turbine innovated by setting up the first Mobile Fablab in Quebec (a 3D printing laboratory) which is dedicated to cultural outreach.

In order to highlight its 15th anniversary, Turbine is presenting art PLASTIQUE, an event made up of a wide spectrum of activities foregrounding the artistic potentials of the 3D printer. The program will also focus on the various issues related to its use. A training workshop for professional artists, a panel discussion, presentations by Quebecois artists who use 3D printing, a first-time workshop led by a recognized bioart artist, introductory activities for the general public and a playful photo booth are among the many activities geared at demystifying the uses and benefits of this increasingly accessible 3D production tool.
