Li Sumpter (WOO '17, ACG '17, '16) has been awarded the Art and Technology Residency with NextFab for her proposed work BOOM4REAL—a pilot series of eco-art objects serving artistic and emergency preparedness purposes, while engaging the communities they will be placed in.

Beyond their “ancient future” aesthetic and geometric and organic forms, these structural sculptures will also function as 1) short and long-term portable storage vessels for emergency supplies and survival resources, 2) interactive tools for community education and empowerment around emergency prep and disaster response and 3) a catalyst to initiate new or deepen existing community partnerships.
