Biography

Pace is an artist, designer, entrepreneur, and living breathing human. 

He is a cofounder of Lepace, a design firm that seeks to make advanced digital design and fabrication skills accessible to other artists and companies. Lepace has produced work for entities such as the United Nations, the Yale Center for Ecosystems in Architecture, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Working with various architects and design firms Lepace has created installations for international exhibitions, the Oslo Architecture Triennale, Hong Kong Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture, and Tomorrows Exhibition to name a few.  

Pace's personal work explores the relationship between 2D image and 3D form with specific interest in the process of dimensional reduction. Before coming to Bennington, he taught a series of workshops at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on Computational Crochet: creating hyperbolic planes and crocheted geometry through programming. In both his personal and professional work, Pace strives to unite knowledge from seemingly disparate fields, because all problems are interdisciplinary, and intellectual silos are lame. He joined Bennington as a Technical Instructor in 3D Fabrication and Digital Art in Fall 2020.
