Drift was a yearlong laser cut paper routine that focused on the relationships between patterns, cognition, and improvisation in order to mimic a pseudo Darwinian model of variety and natural selection. The series as a whole constitutes a species derived from one common set of heritable parameters. Learn how two ICAT funded projects influenced the project and how the collaborative nature of a studio practice can support uninhibited creativity.
