Brief insight into my studio, process, and philosophies regarding the "Laser Beams | Manifest Dreams" project and exhibition.
Zak Weinberg (b. 1993) is a multi-disciplinary sculptor and fabricator. He received a BFA and certification in Public/Architectural Art from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida in 2016. He currently resides in Raleigh, North Carolina, assisting Thomas Sayre in his studio, and Clearscapes with their Public Art projects.
Through the alter-ego Grebniew Kaz (name backwards), a relationship has been forged with a laser cutter, creating and exhibiting machine fabricated wood relief sculptures. Together, they draw inspiration from the visual dialect of architecture, cultural patterns, historic symbolism and motif; utilizing digital precision techniques to transmute future artifacts, envisioning a modern identity for global unification. Each piece is an expression of universal language to celebrate the harmonious balance of difference.
