ARTIST ALEX KAUFMAN - THE WADA ARTS TUBS PROJECT
WADA Artist Member, Alex Kaufman, and his contribution to the WADA Art Tubs Project
Alex Kaufman created a 3D CAD Design of the Royal Theater for the WADA Art Tubs Project.
Having gone to school for engineering, I don’t have a typical art background. And I’m not particularly good at painting or drawing or making with my hands. But I am good at using digital tools, and designing in the 3D realm of CAD. CAD has always been interesting to me, so I’ve applied this to all kinds of making: Jewelry design, 3D printing, large-scale sculpture---I’ve made them all! I approach all of my design with the idea that I want to present an idea clearly and with good design foundations. I use a variety of programs when designing such as Rhino, Keyshot, Zbrush, and Photoshop to name a few. For inspiration, I am always reading about new technologies, following all kinds of artists and scientists, and mostly experimenting and thinking about how I can add complexity to the things I see! It has never been a more exciting time to be a maker and creator and having a science background or an interest in technology has opened up more doors than I ever could have imagined.
