2022-23 Ceramics Program Artist In Residence Nicolas Touron and glass artist Amy Lemaire's ongoing collaboration explores the shapes of the natural world using 3d ceramic printing and glass. The works in Nature 2.0 were produced and developed in the new 3D clay printing area of the Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard.
Their work exists in the past and future at the same time, and is concurrently of flora, fauna, and technology. Lemaire, a glassblower, utilizes a craft invented over two thousand years ago, while Touron uses the contemporary technology of 3D-modeled and printed ceramic. As a result, their works include thousands of years of human innovation as they regard the effects of these achievements and technology on nature. In this sense, their technique and subject matter parallel one another: Lemaire and Touron reveal, in the physical sense and the philosophical, what nature can look like in sync with humans and their technology.
Gallery 224 is open to the public and free from Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm.
