About the Event
Daniel López-Pérez, PhD, is an Associate Professor and a founding faculty member of the Architecture Program in the Department of Art, Architecture and Art History at the University of San Diego. In its second edition, López-Pérez is the author of R. Buckminster Fuller, Pattern-Thinking (Zurich: Lars Muller Publishers, 2020). Fascinated by theories of organicism, or the vast historiography of artistic explorations into the natural world, López-Pérez is currently starting a new book project entitled Organic Architectures.
Matthew Hebert creates work that deals with technology and its effects on the environment and our sense of place. His work takes recognizable furniture forms and layers new forms of use and meaning onto them. Ultimately, the work generates new forms of interaction between the furniture object, the environment, and the user. Matthew received his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley; and his Master of Fine Arts at California College of the Arts. He has taught at several schools including the University of Wisconsin – Madison, CalArts, and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is currently Assistant Professor of Furniture at San Diego State University. His award winning work has been shown internationally.
