Rethinking Time Telling with the Time-IT 3D Printed Watch

Their mission is nothing short of the heroic: to redefine time through original quality timepieces. Whether or not Time-IT® has the power to do so is clearly questionable, but it’s certainly more than likely that they can reshape time telling. Their latest effort to do so comes in the form a series of 3D printed […]

3D Printing in Sand: An Examination of Land and Conflict in Israel

Curators Ori Scialom, Roy Brand, Keren Yeala-Golan, and Edith Kofsky, have turned the Israeli Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale into a sandy construction site.

It’s All Man Made: Pre-Historic Technology Meets 3D Printing

In any show, exhibit, or book about pre-historic life you’ve seen the tear drop shaped hand axes that people used as an all purpose tool. Made from flint or other local stones, the shapes vary surprisingly little over time, or from location to location.  In our time of mind-boggling specialization, this type of generalized implement usually arouses interest […]
