How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister

BY JESSICA CALDAS
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

"My sister reminds me every day why I do the work that I do, why these open, hard conversations are important, how we learn from them and how we help ourselves and others by having them"

In How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 28Jessica Caldas shares about the impact her little sister has on her and her art. Caldas is an aritist based in Atlanta and one whose work stems from challenging subject matter such as domestic abuse and sexual violence. Over the last year, Jessica's younger sister Shoshana has increasingly become an influence in Jessica's work through her openess, honesty, and challenging nautre. Jessica stood before strangers, some friends, and her sister to tell everyone of the special bond these two have and what the bond has meant for Jessica's art.

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism

BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19 ON MAY 12, 2016

What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.
