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.


  • 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!)
