Symposium Speaker: Jonathan Keep, Artist Potter
Jonathan chooses to call himself an artist potter and is a leading exponent of studio based ceramic 3D printing. He has developed a working process whereby the shapes of his pots are written in computer code. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London he has exhibited widely and has undertaken artist residencies, workshops and demonstrations in the UK and abroad.
Jonathan is interested in gaining knowledge through doing – from abstract code to physical, material form. This talk will be entitled The Form is in the Code and will be about why he uses computation to generate work and how natural patterns and chance are central to this way of working. He will discuss the ideas and processes behind his 3D printed or more simply put, his computer guided coil built pots.
