Artist Talk | Lieselle McMahon – Sound Visions

SS pic 9.JPG

Artist Talk | Lieselle McMahon – Sound Visions

Lieselle McMahon is an artist with a multidisciplinary practice incorporating sound, audio visual installation, sculpture, photography and live art. She will be talking about how, having started with a background in sound (using sound synthesis, sound sculpture and design, field recordings, voice), it is the central element in her process, with her work often first visualised through sound and the piece then developing to involve other media from there. This fundamental entry point into the visual through the aural will be discussed using examples from her body of work.

For more information about Lieselle’s work please visit:

Harvard students mentored by A4’s Education Officer Donal Holland win design awards!!

This is not a humble brag, it’s a straight up brag! Our Education Officer is awesome. Congratulations Donal and good luck with your thesis!

Crafted in a 3D printer and outfitted with rubberized pressure sensors, this inexpensive device offers surgeons a confident grip on delicate tissue. (Photo by Eliza Grinnell, SEAS Communications.)

“I think it proves how worthwhile it is to provide students with hands-on design experiences and access to great facilities.” Donal Holland

 

“With a team of other students, and with mentorship from Holland, Walsh, and Dr. Catherine Wee at Spaulding Hospital for Continuing Medical Care, Maeder-York designed a soft, wearable device to help patients regain normal thumb movement—and therefore the ability to grasp objects—after a stroke. The project won the Three-In-Five contest at DMD, as did another of Gafford’s devices. The students now have the opportunity to submit their findings for accelerated review by the prestigious ASME Journal of Medical Devices.”
