Burton Isenstein is Adjunct Assistant Professor in the department of Contemporary Practices of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.
Burtons grandfather, Morris Isenstein, was a jeweler who operated a jewelry store (Isenstein and Silver) on Roosevelt Road in Chicago in the 1940’s and 50’s eventually moving to Jewelers Row on Wabash Avenue. Burtons father (and much of his extended family) was in the printing business. Although Morris could never have imagined using a robot, nothing could be more logical than printing jewelry.
