CUBITS @ SMES


From April 26 to April 29, 2018, I was the Artist-in-Residence at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School in San Juan Capistrano, California. This film documents the interaction of K-12 students with the CUBITS prototype, culminating in the collaborative assembly and disassembly of “Daughter of Boris.” Many thanks to Jesse Standlea, Department Chair of Visual Arts, for organizing this opportunity.

Highlights:

  • 0:50 – 1:00: Kindergarten kids (it’s pajama day!) play with CUBITS.
  • 1:10 – 1:20: Older students build mini-sculptures, organized into a pop-up exhibition along the right wall.
  • 1:50 – 2:35: With the help of several groups of students, I 3D scan a clay sculpture (the dark grey ring), and create CUBITS simulations of it at several different scales. 
  • 2:40 – 4:27: Over the course of two days, I assemble “Daughter of Boris,” the largest CUBITS human figure that has been created so far.
  • 4:52 – 5:54: Sorting and boxing. (Surprisingly fun!)
