Alisa Dworsky
Follow the Nut 40

2017

About

These are Graphite drawings. With a Nod to John cage I make these drawings within a set of rules.I place a metal nut in the center of the paper. I hit the nut with a hammer. It jumps. I follow it. I repeat until the nut jumps off the page. I use graphite paper and handmade color transfer paper as a layer between the paper and the nut. Alisa Dworsky is an artist and architectural designer whose work includes sculpture, installations, buildings, drawings and prints. With a cross-disciplinary approach, she allows her work in one discipline to influence her work in another. She is interested in how structure and force give shape to form, and in the way we use geometric systems to order our environments. Her drawings inspired by movement and rhythms imparted by textiles, agricultural patterns, computer drawings, topographical maps, and architecture are studies of her completed works or harbingers of works to be realized. Dworsky was awarded a Yaddo residency fellowship for winter 2015. She has received six grants from the Vermont Arts Council, four grants from the Vermont Community Foundation, and grants from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation and the Sustainable Arts Foundation. She earned a Masters in Architecture from Yale and a BA from Stanford in both Studio Art and International Relations. She is cofounder of the architectural design firm, Terra Firma Inc. (now DS Architects), with her husband Danny Sagan. Dworsky has taught architecture and art at Norwich University, Stanford University, The Yale Graduate School of Architecture, Ball State University and the Yestermorrow Design-Build School. She lives in Montpelier Vermont with her husband and two daughters.
