confluence:
the way forward

Digital Fabrications

Confluence: The Way Forward, arises out of Grabel’s deep concern for the survival of our species and planet in this current vitriolic, hyper-partisan political climate. Confluence reflects her hope and vision that only by coming together, embracing differences, can we move forward.

Grabel recently discovered, at the Staten Island Makerspace, new technology and expertise that enables her to translate the work into larger scale pieces in wood using a laser cutter or CNC router.
