TE+ND (Terrestrial Exploration + Nurture Designed) Rovers are an interactive art project that explore migratory ecology in an era of climate change. The rovers are robotic fostering environments that care for their own garden of native plants by interacting with participants and actively seeking out light and water.

I've been invited to give a lecture at San Jose State's Department of Art and Art History on Sept. 29th from 5-6pm. The lectures are usually held in Art #133. I'll be talking about the conceptual history of my current work and the processes used to create a ceramic robot. For more information about the lecture or San Jose State's lecture series check out their schedule. In case you couldn't tell, I'm excited about talking at my alma mater!
