"Beloved Cacti," on display at Philadelphia International Airport. (all photos courtesy of the artist)


Artist Matty Geez is surrounded by cacti.

He has a few in the apartment he shares in Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood with husband Erwin and cats Panda and Uma. About 15 live in his North Philly art studio.

And then there are the dozens of flamboyantly colored, towering cacti he creates in that studio -- super-charged soft sculptures that are now on display at Philadelphia International Airport through the end of the month.

You won't want to miss the work of Miguel Horn, a Philadelphia-based large-format sculptor, who visits the College Friday, Oct. 18, for a noon lecture open to the public and a 2 pm demonstration for PCA&D students. Both events will be held in the Atrium. 

An artist with Colombian and Venezuelan roots, Horn integrates the natural and digital worlds, and emphasizes the role of artist and craftsman in an age of digital automation. His public works of art are on display on several continents (you can read the story of one recent Philly piece, from ideation to creation, here.)

Horn will be accompanied during his PCA&D visit by Joel Pollett from Cimquest, who will bring a handheld 3D scanner and work alongside Horn for the afternoon demonstration.

Horn talked with PCA&D about that tension between technology and human creativity; how they're intertwined; and the necessity of both techies and artists to find a shared language. Read on to find out more about his appearance at PCA&D:
