MariBeth Baloga: 2005-06 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I attended a two day symposium in New York sponsored by Material Connexion, a company which is a source of cutting edge materials for architects, artists and designers from all disciplines.

The mission of the conference, which was titled Terra Matter: Inspire, Innovate, and Sustain, was to examine the role of the material used by artists and designers as key elements of inspiration, to showcase some of the most noteworthy innovations in materials, and to discuss issues of sustainability as both an ecological concern and an economic consideration.
