Nathaniel Stern’s internationally exhibited “Compressionist” prints are created when the artist straps a desktop scanner, computing device, 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. Some of the gorgeous results are currently on view at the James Watrous Gallery and you can join the artist to learn more about his process and try it yourself at a free, two-hour workshop at Madison Public Library's Bubbler. Participants will learn about Stern's idiosyncratic process and discuss techniques and resulting images, receive information and a demonstration on how to construct battery packs, hardware, and use software, and have the opportunity to try a scanner rigs to experiment in making your own images.

The workshop is free and open to ages 12+ if attending independently and 6+ if attending with a guardian. Registration is required.
