Sense the Wind – Film Screening champ_start_600x338

With producer/Director, Christine Knowlton

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 7 pm

On Tuesday, September 27th at 7:00pm, a special screening will be held at the WCC of Sense the Wind. The hour-long documentary will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, WCC Alumnae, Christine Knowlton and WCC Instructor, Gerry Katzban who created the animated maps and FX.

Blind sailors race across open water learning not to fear what cannot be seen. Sense the Wind is a journey led by four blind sailors – Nancy, Inky, Philip and Matt as they train and compete at the Blind Nationals and press towards Japan’s Blind Sailing World Championships. They compete despite risk, to a crossing boom, collisions, or falling overboard. On the water, teamwork and intuition take over. Disabilities are no longer the focus. Between seasons, life takes a turn when one gains more than a trophy and must learn to live and sail with new sensibilities.

3D Printing and The Design Process

Talk: Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 7 pm

Bill Albertini takes a sculptor’s fascination with the transformation of different organic forms and a debt to mid-20th century conceptualist experiments with serialization, and marries these to an industrial designer’s passion for technique. This confluence of influences helped him create a series of 3-D printed lamps in different shapes and sizes. This talk will examine how design, engineering and art converge in the realm of 3D printing. Mr. Albertini works with cutting edge 3D printers to produce his work. Learn more about the design iteration process and the engineering challenges of prototyping and producing work with 3D printers.
