Deadline August 30: Digital Fabrication Residency is a professional development program engaging artists with digital tools for project visualization and fabrication workflows for 3D printing, CNC routing, laser cutting, digital embroidery, textile printing, animation and other platforms. A core concept of this program is to engage in the digital craft of making as it concerns technology augmenting with traditional fabrication concepts, processes and materials. Residents learn software workflows and become knowledgeable in current applications of technology in the production of art. Residents accepted into the summer and fall programs will have the opportunity to exhibit artworks created in the program in an exhibition in NYC organized by Digital Fabrication Residency.
Our program consists of an Online Program that includes group workshops, individual project development, guest speakers and invaluable resource information for understanding digital fabrication workflows. We also offer an Online/Onsite residency that is specifically catered to individual project goals that develop initially through online project development finalizing with onsite learning with machines and fabrication with the artist. Both programs provide artists with limited licenses to selected software and optional 3D print, laser cut, textile print or digital embroidery resources. Also as part of our programing, Digital Fabrication Residency hosts online guest speaker presentations during the residency session that are open to residents and the public.

You can sell your original artwork, bring prints of your work and anything hand made is fine, just use your judgement and err on the side of arty. We have nothing to do with you selling your work. We do not act as your art dealers or brokers. It’s free for you to be in the show, but if you sell something and want to donate Pterodactyl a few bucks nobody’s going to turn you down. We are not responsible in any way for lost, stolen or damaged artwork. We just supply the space and the fun. By being in this show you agree that we are not responsible for damages/loss/etc. You’ll get about 6 horizontal feet of space to show work (make the best of it!). Want in? Great! e-mail us: BIGARTSHOW@pterodactylphiladelphia.org.
