Sung Lab Art Residency 2025

The Sung Robotics Lab at University of Pennsylvania will host an art residency program that will bring together faculty, students, and community artists to explore artistic applications of origami-inspired robotic technologies. An artist, designer, or creative from any discipline will spend summer 2025 at the lab and develop a creative origami robotics project. The resident will have access to our manufacturing equipment and engineering mentorship from Penn students and faculty. In addition, in 2025 the artist in residence will have a designated studio space at The Arts League in West Philadelphia. The residency will culminate in an exhibition and community engagement to share their results at The Arts League.​
