Florida State College at Jacksonville presents an invitational exhibition featuring works of art by pioneers and newcomers in the field of digital fabrication as it relates to art, architecture and design. The explosion of computer-assisted fabrication processes is having an enormous impact on the creative arts. This exhibit explores how artists use these tools to both supplement other processes and create sculptural form from scratch.
