     About the presenters:

    Anna Walker is the Windgate Foundation Curatorial Fellow for Contemporary Craft at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston where she most recently assisted on the publication and traveling exhibition, Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice S. and Melvin B. Eagle Collection. Prior to this she was the Curator at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. She graduated Summa cum Laude with her MA in Arts Administration from Indiana University, Bloomington and has her BA in Art with honors from Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.




    Ryan Buyssens was born and raised near Detroit, MI; an environment that imparted a rich, lifelong influence from the automotive industry’s mechanized culture. An artist in the broadest sense of the word, he expresses his ideas through countless media. Preferring to explore the “what if” in the evolution of technology, he seeks out a departure from the logical path of invention and uses it as a branch that sprouts new possibilities. His work becomes a comment on logic and progress.




    Mojo Coworking (Asheville, NC) provides resources for the maximum focus and diffusion of creative energy to elevate our individual, community, commercial and global well being. It has the first publicly available 3D printers in Asheville as part of the Mojo Van Winkle 3D Innovation Lab

    Drop in during 3D Printing Week, August 12-16 for an exclusive chance to watch Mojo Coworking’s 3D Systems Cube in action! Isaac Norris, Mojo’s prodigious young summer employee, will be on hand to answer questions, show examples of 3D printing, and talk about his own exciting new projects. 

    The Center for Design Innovation (Raleigh, NC) is catalyzing economic transformation of the state’s Piedmont area through design-focused activity based on advanced digital technologies that include 3D printing and modeling. Collaborating broadly with various academic, business, and community organizations, CDI deliberately works across disciplines and economic sectors to generate innovative results. This work involves development of techniques in data analysis, modeling, and visualization and often utilizes 3D printing in the process.



    This event is held in conjunction with our current exhibition, Ctrl + P

    Ctrl + P is curated by Anna Walker and organized by Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.
