Matthew Shlian: Telemetry

Crossroads of Art and Science

Residency & Exhibition

January 26 - March 2, 2017



Thursday, January 26 

Artist Talk at 6pm in U. Tobe Recital Hall with a reception to follow until 8pm in the Arts Complex

As a paper engineer, Shlian’s work is rooted in print media, book arts and commercial design.  Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifests in drawings and three-dimensional forms. Researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles; Shlian sees their inquiry as a basis for artistic inspiration.  Shlian will exhibit past work and partner with FGCU faculty and students to create new work related to research being conducted at FGCU.

Visual Language: The Art of Typography and Creative Writing

February 23 - March 30, 2017

Curated by Sasha Minsky and Jesse Millner



Thursday, February 23

Opening Reception from 5pm - 7pm

When typography, the design and creation of type, is applied to literary texts, this collaboration can result in a hybrid form of art that provides incredible visuals and summons intellectually stimulating experiences for both the artists and their audiences. This exhibition features the work of the Special Topics Advanced Typography course instructed by Sasha Minsky in collaboration with Jesse Millner’s Narrative Techniques creative writing class. Students from both courses worked together to bring literary narratives alive through the use of innovative typography techniques. 


Sponsored by U. Tobe, The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
