Max Spitzer

Max Spitzer is a teaching artist who works with large sculptures and small children. By conflating interactive object design, intuitive formalist abstraction, semiotic analysis, and pedagogical strategies, he questions the social implications of sculpture making and its potential to be harnessed as an educational tool.
