Technology is beginning to bring on new forms of art. These art-forms which previously may have never been imagine, continue to emerge on the scene due to advances in technology that make what was once impossible, suddenly possible. 3D printing has played a huge role in this, as the technology itself can now be seen as a new art form itself. We have seen many companies and individuals utilize this technology to create works of art which combine modern technology with more traditional craftsmanship.
Recently at the Third World 3D Printing Technology Industry Conference & Expo, taking place in China, there were plenty of companies and individuals on hand to show off their latest and greatest creations. One of these companies was EAZER, a chinese based group who specializing in creating 3D models, selling 3D printers and fabricating unique products. They had teamed with Chung Wen, an associate professor at Huazhong University of Science and Technology to create a huge interactive 3D printed wall, unlike anything we have seen before (see video below).
The wall, which displays a wide range of colors to correspond with various data that is fetched from a network, also allows users to play intuitive games. It created quite a sensation for vistors at the 3D printing expo. People lined up waiting to get a chance to interactive with this unique piece of art.
“It felt weird,” one visitor at the show explained. “3D printing is too powerful!”
The wall not only combines projection technology with 3D printing and parametric design, but it also involved a lot of design work that focused on art, digital technology, digital design, programming logic, and a general sense of rhythm.
This is not the end for the creators this wall. In fact, they plan to iterate upon it in the future by adding in additional sensors such as infrared, ultrasonic, humidity detection and barometric pressure, to make it even more interactive and intuitive than it already is.
