About Event

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.
