About Kimberly Voigt
Kimberly Voigt, MFA is an educator and studio jeweler living and working in Philadelphia. She’s been actively engaged in higher education teaching, technology, social design projects and personal creative work since 1999. Voigt’s studio based research and work, as an educator, have been directly influenced by current communication technologies and emerging rapid manufacturing technologies. Her studio practice explores digital technologies and additive fabrication technologies through jewelry and object design. Digital technologies have altered not only the way she thinks and creates, but also present interesting opportunities for teaching and interacting with her students and colleagues in traditional studio formats and emerging virtual studios.
Her creative work has been recently exhibited in national and international venues. Most recently her work has appeared in Lark Crafts “500”series book, “500 Rings”; Metalsmith magazine; Houston Museum of Fine Art (Houston, TX, USA); Durham University (Durham, England); and ATINER in Athens, Greece. She’s been actively involved with SIGGRAPH, an internationally recognized computer graphics organization, at the organizational level since 1999. She holds a BFA in Metalsmithing and Sculpture from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (Fairbanks, AK, USA) and a MFA in Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia, PA, USA).
