I will be on campus and working remotely this semester. When on campus I will be in the Maker Arts Space with the door closed. If you would like to schedule a zoom meeting this semester please contact me at dwatson1 [at] haverford.edu .
As Coordinator and Technician of the Maker Arts Space I facilitate faculty, staff, and student involvement in the Maker Arts Space. I work closely with faculty across departments building curriculum that relates to digital technologies and making. In the classroom I teach and support faculty who are utilizing the Maker Arts Space (some examples of my student's work). I also run workshops, coordinate visitor programming, and oversee the open studio hours. This includes managing student workers during those hours.
My job is both day-to-day management of the Maker Arts Space and long-term strategic planning, marketing, and branding. I do everything from machine maintenance to class lectures.
My main interests are in digital fabrication (3D printing, CNC machining), 3D design and prototyping, design for disability/universal design, community building, music production, video production, animation and science fiction. I enjoy a lot of different kinds of art but I really love whimsical, charming and silly art the most. For example, I appreciate a really good pun in an art piece. Here is a link to some of my artwork.
Kent or David?
I prefer Kent, my middle name, though calling me David will not bother me.
