Robert Lazzarini
ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — The fall semester brings new chances for Winthrop University and the surrounding community to talk about creativity, community, entrepreneurship, engagement and innovation.

The next round of the Innovate, Create, Engage (ICE) program’s lecture series begins Monday, Oct. 26, when New York City artist Robert Lazzarini visits campus. Lazzarini’s lecture, “Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling in the Work of Robert Lazzarini,” begins at 7 p.m. in Dina’s Place. A reception will follow in the lobby of the DiGiorgio Campus Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Lazzarini’s most famous work, “Shadow Moires,” takes common objects and subjects them to “compound distortions,” creating confusing visuals and complicating the space of pictures and things. His work challenges basic perceptions and interrupts his audience’s visual recognition process.

He has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 1995, including Berlin, Mexico City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Brooklyn.

The ICE program is modeled after Microsoft’s popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talks, in which experts from multiple fields share their ideas through brief powerful talks. Funding for the project was secured through a grant from the S.C. Department of Commerce for the Knowledge Park Innovation Center, submitted by the city of Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation in conjunction with Winthrop, York Technical College, Comporium, the city and other partners.
