Range Studio


is a public art project, mobile work space and micro residency center comprised of two tiny art Studios. 


Studio 1 is a 65 square foot “off the grid” solar powered art studio is built on the back of a flat bed trailer that can be deployed to locations as needed to support public art projects and performances.  Studio 1 is built from reclaimed and salvage materials, designed and constructed by David Szlasa.  The public launch of Studio 1 took place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts BAN7 festival in August, 2014.  In 2015 Studio 1 was deployed along Mid Market Street in San Francisco, sponsored by the SF Mayors Office Living Innovation Zone program.

In 2016, Studio 1 partnered with the Tivoli Artist Gallery, Hudson Opera House, and CATCH performance series in the New York Hudson Valley. 


Studio 2 was built as an agile programming platform for the arts by students at Stanford University under the direction of David Szlasa.  Materials for the construction of the studio were gathered from the maintenance yard at the University and milled at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, a field research station of the University.  Studio 2 is a mobile classroom space at Jasper Ridge and exhibition space at the Cantor Art Museum on campus, hosting classes and exhibitions in art, music, and social practice.
