Undergraduate or graduate internships are available in areas of digital modelling, computing, 3D printing, and studio support, and in communication and public outreach.
Interns are assisting with the design, development, and production of sculptural 3D printed forms for creative research.
Educational benefits include hands-on experience with sculptural/3D design, form development, prototyping and production (3D printing with clay). Slip Rabbit interns also gain a broader understanding of the ceramic process: materials, mold making, slip casting, and firing.
This internship is also a great portfolio building opportunity for a student with an eye on careers in design, engineering, architecture, STEAM education, and visual art.
Project driven research residencies in digital ceramics are available for emerging artists, designers, engineers, scientists and other professionals with the goal of exploring various sculptural, architectural, and process-based possibilities of 3D printing with clay. Often, the ceramic material will have a “will of its own,” turning the making process into an exciting inquiry into a play of possibilities, beautiful “errors” and serendipitous discoveries.
Residencies are awarded by invitation of selected research proposals. Priority is given to interdisciplinary projects.
Applicants must have taken an Intro to Ceramic 3D Printing Workshop to have a working knowledge with the process and studio equipment. Selected residency participants will receive a subsidized rate of $45-75/hour (sliding scale) access to studio equipment for up to 6 hours/week, and consultation time with the director. Residency projects are documented through the studio for educational purposes and may be shared in order to facilitate exploration and discovery.
Creative Collaborations are a great way to get involved with the current research direction of Slip Rabbit. At this moment, we are the most interested in finding partners with innovative ideas for cross-disciplinary collaborations that involve rule-based self-generating systems (math and CS), modular and periodic structures (architecture and parametric design), movement and sensor interface technologies (IxD, engineering) and experimental augmentations to the printer. As a collaborator, you are encouraged to be as much part of the hands-on making and exploration as your time allows, while the specialized ceramics equipment will be handled by the studio director and the Slip Rabbit interns.
If you have a creative collaboration idea or would like to develop one with Slip Rabbit, contact us for getting the discussion started.
We offer a range of individualized learning experiences in the form of private and semi-private workshops for adults, at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. We designed flexible curriculum workshops for teachers and college instructors, as well as for tailored programs for designers, architects and artists.
