Virginia San Fratello, Emerging Objects: Projects+ Process

March 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - April 13, 2023 @ 4:30 pm

Clark and Laura Boyce Gallery, 104 Julian T. Hall (formerly Design Building)

Emerging Objects: Projects + Process explores the practice of the LSU School of Interior Design visiting designer Virginia San Fratello and the firm for which she serves as chief creative officer and co-founder, Emerging Objects. Emerging Objects is an independent, creatively driven, 3D printing MAKE-tank aiming to 3D print architecture and spaces for living and working. Emerging Objects’ innovation lies in a unique approach to materials and sizes and the belief that 3D printing is the medium where good ideas become real.

The exhibition highlights four of Emerging Objects’ architectural designs rooted in craft traditions, place, and 3D printed components that utilize bioplastics, cement, clay, and salt. The exhibition delves into the firm’s core practice of material exploration with particulates such as cement, sand, clay, salt, sawdust, coffee, tea – materials that are often local, recycled, and industrial byproducts. Emerging Objects sees working from the small scale imposed by 3D printing limitations as an advantage: they employ the idea of a print farm to design with accessibility, sustainability, interactivity – and a relationship to craft traditions – at the fore.

Exhibition and programming hosted in conjunction with Paula G. Manship Endowed Lecture by Virginia San Fratello, Emerging Objects co-founder. Supported in part by the Windgate Foundation.
