Justin Playl is a sculptor from Ohio, specializing in kinetic and interactive sculpture with large home-made mechanical parts. Though Justin primarily works with wood, rubber, and metal, he is happy to build anything out of any material. And, as someone who is keenly interested in science and engineering, he is always looking for ways to combine developing technologies with more traditional art media.

Currently Justin works as a moldmaker and bronze foundryman, but by night, he is the START Studio/SAA Maker-in-Residence.
