3D Printed Lights and Artificial Intelligence Used in Interactive 'Living Architecture' Structure

3D Printed Lights and Artificial Intelligence Used in Interactive 'Living Architecture' Structure

A design that takes its cues from natural processes for creation is referred to as biophilic – rather than green design, which is used to keep harm from coming to the environment, biophilic design imitates the processes that allow the natural world to survive. Biophilic design has been used in a 3D printing construction project with living […]

Vespers: Series of 3D Printed Death Masks Feature at National Gallery of Victoria

We have long admired the work of Neri Oxman, the architect, designer, and professor who runs the Mediated Matter research group at the MIT Media Lab and coined the phrase ‘material ecology’ to describe how she molds materials in a nature-inspired context. Oxman often partners with Stratasys on her 3D printed artistic visions, most recently on the breakthrough Vespers series of 3D […]

Kilwell Fibretube to 3D Print Massive Sculpture for New Zealand Roadway

The mind of the artist is shown to us by expressions of creativity that are often described as beautiful, stunning—as well as thought-provoking and inspirational—and so much more. One particular piece of work that has been under consideration in New Zealand is meant to encompass all those qualities as well as acting as a welcome […]

Enjoy This Dead Fly Encased in a 3D Print: Is it Art, a Valuable Fossil, or Evidence of the Anthropocene Era?

Enjoy This Dead Fly Encased in a 3D Print: Is it Art, a Valuable Fossil, or Evidence of the Anthropocene Era?

Are you one of those people who swats flies to their death with wild abandon, wielding the fly swatter as a lethal weapon? Many of us are serious about ridding our environment of these pests, one by one. Others bring to mind the saying ‘wouldn’t hurt a fly’ and in lieu of the fly swatter […]

New Mat Collishaw Works Feature 3D Printed Zoetrope & Virtual Reality Photography Landscape

New Mat Collishaw Works Feature 3D Printed Zoetrope & Virtual Reality Photography Landscape

While Mat Collishaw may not be completely comfortable with 3D printing, it would seem that he is happily dependent on it—as seen in one of his latest works featuring an enormous zoetrope accentuated with 3D printed birds and flowers. Titled Centrifugal Soul, the zoetrope will be on display until May 27 at Blain|Southern in London. […]

NASA's Massive James Webb Space Telescope Inspires Out-of-This-World 3D Printed Art

Art is always inspired by something – a feeling, an event, a muse. So what can artists come up with when their given muse is a large, technologically advanced telescope? NASA, which has long acknowledged how space exploration can inspire works of art, selected 25 multimedia artists to view the large, infrared James Webb Space Telescope […]

Ukrainian Artist Unveils 3-Meter-Tall 3D Printed "Walking Flower" Sculpture

From the earliest cave drawings to the “Mona Lisa” portrait that hangs in the Louvre, art is an interesting, fluid concept. A piece of artwork that moves you to tears could have virtually no effect on someone standing right next to you and looking at the same piece of art. Art comes in all forms and […]

UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage Works on Conserving 3D Printed Artwork

I think we can all agree that 3D printed art is a marvel, even if you’re still not sure you can technically call it art. In my personal opinion, 3D printing just takes artwork to a new level – there are so many different ways of creating art, who are we to judge if pushing a button […]

Akinori Goto Creates the Illusion of Dance with 3D Printed Zoetrope

Akinori Goto Creates the Illusion of Dance with 3D Printed Zoetrope

Way back before production companies like Pixar flashed heart-warming animated movies before our eyes, and Saturday mornings became synonymous for cartoons, was a bedazzling pre-film animation device called the zoetrope. Popularized in the 19th century, a zoetrope produces the illusion of motion through a sequence of drawings or photographs, utilizing a spinning cylinder to carry […]

Indulge Yourself in Follies:  Featuring a 3D Printed Zoetrope Orgy & Peaceful Meditative Mirror Installation

Folly! It’s the name of Mat Collishaw’s exhibit in the ornamental setting at Fountain’s Abbey in Yorkshire, but the artwork is certainly anything but, featuring two very different installations, gaining us access to Seria Ludo in the Banqueting House—which was built in the seventeenth century for ribaldry and exactly what the name would entail—and The Pineal […]

Waterscape: A Series of Minimalist Aquarium Designs Made Using 3D Printed Objects

One of the things that I love about the world of contemporary art is the complete lack of boundaries or limitations that it places on artists. Museums and galleries that feature works of contemporary art can include everything from paintings to large-scale installations and collages to wildly unpredictable performance art. While yes, a lot of […]

Doolydoo Turns your Kids' Drawings into 3D Printed Collectable Statues

The parents of a young child, almost without exception, will have a refrigerator covered with drawings, doodles, and artwork. The family refrigerator art gallery is something that crosses borders and nationalities, but unfortunately most of those memories will be lost to time and the fragility of the paper they were drawn on. Some parents keep […]

Artficial Launches Innovative New Platform for Replicating the 'DNA' of Art via 3D Printing

We have seen 3D printing go to use in replicating many of history’s great art works. While today’s technology now allows for the 3D scanning of sculptures and statues, it is still limited by the 3D printers that we are capable of having on our desktops. One company, called Artficial, looks to make the process of precisely […]
