Works by designer Jenny Sabin (2010) are on display as part of an exhibition titled Naturalizing Architecture at the FRAC Centre in Orléans, France. Sabin is presenting two distinct but related bodies of work, one stemming from her transdisciplinary project titled eSkin and the other from her exploration of digital ceramics. One of the pieces, titled PolyMorph, is composed of 1400+ digitally produced and individually hand-cast ceramic components, interwoven and networked to form a large suspended structure. The exhibition will be open through February 2, 2014. More information >
