Adam Grinovich started his residency period on 2.10.2014. I have been working with him closely since that. We started with sketches of design of Adam´s rings. Adam had brilliant idea of using laser cutting as tool for manufacturing these rings, and also using of 3D printing. 3D printing enables creation of complex geometries, and also precious materials, such as silver and gold can be used. Nevertheless, during this project and Adam´s period in residency we ended up to use stainless steel. This manufacturing process is under progress, and we are looking forward of seeing the models during this week. Working with Adam has gone fluently, as he has strong technological background. He also prefers tight scheduling which helps us to coordinate manufacturing timetables and take care that everything goes smoothly. We are really looking forward of seeing end results after his residency period.
Works and the artist himself can be seen in an Open Studio at 11.11.2014 at 14:00-16:00 in Tuotantokatu 2, 53850 Lappeenranta.
