 If you are interested in becoming part of The Tinker Factory please contact Renate Ferro.

The Tinker Factory, an extension of Ferro'sart practice is currently located at Cornell University, Tjaden Hall, Studio 420.

Renate Ferro is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Art. <rtf9@cornell.edu> Renate Ferro’s artistic practice involves critical interactivity incorporating emerging technologies with the social and theoretical structures of the psychological and sociological condition.  Central to her practice is the translation of analog technology (print, super 8 film, television) into new digital media.  The juxtaposition between the old and the new within the architectural installation space provides an “in-between” trajectory where the viewer's body traverses the material space to discover digital realms of light, sound, and motion sensors to uncover the layered paradigms of the personal and the political. Combining material with immaterial elements is central to most of her recent projects where the physical body and sculptural or architectural elements converge.
