Artist Paul Nosa: Creations with a Solar-Powered Sewing Machine

Sustainability Series

Paul Nosa

  • Visual Artist / Innovator / Entrepreneur

Join Arizona native Paul Nosa for a sewing performance with his Solar Sewing Rover – a sewing machine powered by solar or a bicycle with an electric generator. Nosa uses titles or people’s five-word scenarios to “draw” with a sewing machine without a template or computer.

Nosa, recipient of a 2015 Artist Research & Development Grant, travels the nation showcasing renewable energy. He's attended the Maker Faire’s in NYC and has had installations at the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum, Oakland Art MurMur, Bay Area Maker Fair, San Francisco’s Exploratorium, the Sustainable Living Road show, and will soon exhibit at the Phoenix Library.

Join us as Nosa creates original images, machine-sewn onto fabric patches, using word associations that you provide.

No RSVP required for this event. Co-sponsored by University Sustainability Practices.
