Recent economic reports speculate that a third industrial revolution shaped by digital technologies is underway. Ctrl + P investigates the implications of such technologies on the making of sculptural and functional objects in the 21st century.
Ctrl + P is curated by Anna Walker and organized by Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.
This exhibition would not be possible without the support of the NC Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
