2018 North Texas Digital Fabrication Symposium

This year's Symposium is themed "Humanizing the Digital" and will take place on April 20-21 on the TWU Denton Campus. Artists, researchers, makers and students will come together at TWU to discuss digital fabrication, its practice, pedagogy and curation. The symposium events will include panel discussions of 5-6 panelists organized around three subthemes: Embodiment & Technology, Adaptation & Play, and Process & Practice. Six workshops, scheduled each afternoon of the symposium, give participants hands-on application and learning with digital fabrication tools.

We will also host a student exhibition titled "(non) standard" -- organized by UNT Graduate Students Karla Garcia and Krissi Riewe -- which will be displayed in our new Projects Space during the symposium. The show calls for work made to fit within a defined grid format so that the accepted work can be displayed in tiled groupings. Submissions must include digitally fabricated elements, but work that also incorporates handmade or analog elements is highly encouraged. There is no entry fee, however accepted entrants are responsible for all shipping costs.

The submission deadline is March 23rd.

TWU will host a corresponding Digital Fabrication Exhibition including works by some of the artists and presenters from the symposium. The artworks represent a broad spectrum of practice within the wide world of digital fabrication applications: physical, speculative and functional.

Please contact Colby Parsons, or Julie Libersat at for more information.

Roberto's Bio:
I am a potter, social activist, spoken word poet, and educator. All of these roles are rooted in my childhood. Having had no formal music or art training, I often practiced table drumming and writing hip-hop lyrics as it was customary to "battle rap" during lunch Instead of art class, I drew in my composition book and marked every wall that I could. "Graffiti" was a way to get my name into the community, to attain a local fame.

Upgrading your site with DecoNetwork 8

Our master of all things DecoNetwork, Cris, is here with a video in response to the many customer questions we’ve had about upgrading and migrating your existing DecoNetowork site with the new page creation and management tools in the upcoming DecoNetwork 8.

In the video, Cris addresses the following common concerns, all while directly demonstrating the steps you need to recreate your original DecoNetwork site with the new DecoNetwork 8 tools.

  • What happens to my customized DecoNetwork 7.5 site when I upgrade?
  • Will I be able to work on my new DecoNetwork 8 site at my own pace?
  • When will the changes I make in my new site go live?
  • Will upgrading my site affect the affiliate sites connected to my account?

In short, Cris is here to put your fears to rest; when upgrading, your original DecoNetwork site is live, unchanged, and available to your customers, even while you are creating your new responsive site with the intuitive new tools in DecoNetwork 8. You’ll be able to work on your site, save changes as you work, and preview the new site as a customer would see it, only making it live when you decide to publish.

Cris walks us through the upgrade and recreates his custom site with ease, showing us every step along the way.
