  • Hello!
    I teach a Contemporary Art History course at a public high school in Manhattan, and I will be showing your artwork to my students in the next week or so. We're about to begin studying the work in the Out of Hand exhibition, and I'm very excited that we get to cover your work. Before I introduce my students to your work though, I just wanted to ask a few questions:
    --Is there anything you feel like viewers need to know before they approach your work for the first time?
    --Are there any texts or media that have largely influenced your creative process?
    --Women all over the world deal with the issues you bring up in your work, what has been the most challenging thing about creating your work in relation to this population of people?
    Thank you kindly for taking the time to read, consider, and respond!
    Be well,
    -Nick Kozak

  • 2. 3D PRINTING (additive manufacturing)
  • 3. Vocab: 3D Printing  A process for making a physical three dimensional model from a three dimensional digital model.  This is accomplished through printing several thin layers on top of one another until the object gains height.

  • 15. quote “The project really came about in 2008 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. We went through the operations and conversations with radiologists and surgeons but nobody ever talked about what this thing inside me looked like, what form it had, what size it was…. …I was just making all these decisions and it felt like this ominous invisible monster that I really wanted to grasp…I wanted to see what was inside me.”

  • 20. Mission OBJECT BREAST CANCER (OBC) is based on the conviction that artistic interventions can have important social and psychological effects. OBC believes that tumor visualization can serve as a powerful, direct and innovative way of confronting the aftermath of a disease that affects almost 300,000 women in the US every year. OBC intends its amulets to be empowering, to facilitate dialogue and bring attention to the importance of medical imaging and early detection. Aside from the OBC jewels, the project also includes sculptural and installation work.

  • 22. The pink ribbon has been an incredibly successful piece of marketing for breast cancer research. For cancer survivor Leonor Caraballo, it's supremely annoying. She always hated the color pink. She wanted to come up with a symbol that she didn’t find infantilizing. Caraballo is a new media artist who collaborates with her husband, Abou Farman, under the name caraballo-farman. The couple started making bronze models of real tumors, created from MRI scans, that you can wear around your neck or put on your desk.
  • 23. Which is a more effective symbol for breast cancer awareness? Which symbolizes the struggle of this condition? Which raises the issue and creates a conversation? Which will motivate the viewer involved in finding a cure for breast cancer?
  • 24. “and I wanted to make a jewel out of something horrific….it allows for conversation around breast cancer. It’s more active than a little pink teddy bear.”
  • 25. Hi Nick Sorry for the tardy reply. Here are some quick answers. Viewers should know that the work is not as literal as it appears at first. Our influences range from anthropology to cinema, but in terms of actual process, what's needed is motivation, and that comes from artist friends, people we know who are also trying to do and say something. In this work, the reaction has been binary: some people balk and others, and a few, usually those who have been affected by the disease, jump right in. Society is not used to confronting something like a tumor, especially personal ones, actual ones rather than abstract ideas about it. Most of the culture is set up to hide it from us. So looking at it straight is not easy, understandably so. Thanks, OBC

  • 27. Italian designer Lucas Maassen wired his brain to an EEG- measuring device and relaxed as he contemplated the word "comfort." Then he and Belgian Unfold principal Dries Verbruggen translated that brainwave file into instructions for Computer Numerical Control milling machines that carved a block of foam into a biomorphic 3-D couch.
  • 28. BRAIN WAVE SOFA 2010
  • 29. Vocab: CNC  “Computer Numerical Control” or CNC for short is a process where a user can program a machine to cut through a material by giving it coordinates through a computer.  Usually, artists use Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs to generate a 3D digital model, which can be translated to a CNC Laser Cutter.

  • 31. http://www.d- This project questions the possibility of owning a product when the product is virtual. Music and movies are detached from their physical carriers and can be borrowed or bought from shops and digital libraries. This restructuring is now beginning to manifest in the world of physical products, as well, due to 3D scanning and 3D printing.

  • 49. “In architecture, you really have to go at it full time. You can’t afford to dip in and out. And when women do succeed at it, the press spends far too much time talking about how we dress, what shoes we’re wearing, who we’re seeing. That’s pretty sad for women, especially when it’s written by other women who should really know better. “
