V2V: Valley to Valley (July 2012; September 2012)
INNOPROM, the URAL Biennial, and Zero1 (San Jose, CA; Yekaterinburg, Russia)
Valley to Valley is a collaboration of artists, art historians, and social scientists exploring the similarities and differences between the sister cities San Jose, California and Yekaterinburg, Russia. The teams worked together within a virtual gaming space to interact and build the sculptures. The code was then taken from the gaming platform and run through a series of 3D modeling software so it would be compatible with CAD software. The sculptures were then realized in large scale physical form with the use of CNC equipment.
