3D Printed Sculpture Showcases the Detrimental Nature of San Francisco’s Rising Housing Prices

While the Bay Area’s continuously growing tech bubble has led to a plethora of innovations for both San Francisco and the rest of the world, this boom has also caused a major upswing in the price of surrounding real estate, which has attributed to longtime local residents being driven out of their neighborhoods. In order […]

Famous Portraits Reimagined in 3D Print: Daniel Warnecke Updates the Classics

Famous Portraits Reimagined in 3D Print: Daniel Warnecke Updates the Classics

Photographer Daniel Warnecke‘s work explores portraiture’s essence, moving beyond the realistic conveyance of an exterior topography to questions of how a captured likeness continues to evolve despite traditional conceptualizations of it as a frozen moment in time. His latest project has involved mining material from the rich history of portraits by masters such as Gainsborough and Arbus. […]

'Spherical Creations': Artist Dario Santacroce Creates Amazing 3D Printed Sandstone Sculptures

Traditional artists are turning to using 3D printing in their work, and making some very interesting hybrid art — that is, art made using both 3D modeling and traditional hand finishing techniques. As I recently reported, 3D sculpture seems to be a hot item, especially when it comes to representing classical geometric forms. Italian artist […]

3Dealise Brings to Life Rinus Roelofs' Giant Cylindrical Knot Sculpture

There is an increasing realization that the divide between art and mathematics is an artificial one. One person who has known this all along is digital sculptor and mathematician Rinus Roelofs.

Adam Beane Industries Teases a New 3D Printer Filament You Can Sculpt

I took several ceramics classes in high school and college, and I loved working with clay. It’s such a forgiving medium; mistakes can be easily smoothed over, reformed, and made to vanish. It’s so changeable, as well; several of my favorite pieces started out as one thing, then turned into something else entirely as they […]

Beautiful 3D Printed Sculpture Appears to Move, Thanks to Lighting and Mathematics

You may, at first glance, mistake it for some strange, exotic sea creature – a newly discovered species of jellyfish, perhaps, or sea urchin. Whatever it is, it’s beautiful. Luminous, undulating, it literally glows with life as it rotates in its bowl, beads of white sliding across its surface. It’s not a creature, though – […]

At first sight, the teeming white figures seem to represent the active citizenry of a metropolis, all out and on their way about their daily lives. However, get closer and you realize that these are no ordinary creatures. Each is nearly human and some are partly so. Some have limbs that grow like tentacles while others are […]

Digital Synesthesia: REIFY Turns Your Favorite Song into a 3D Printed Sculpture

Think about how many times you’ve heard a tune on the radio and said, “That’s my song.” What would it look like if you could take it to the next dimension, and hold it in your hand? Further, what if you could turn simple sounds or phrases—or even speeches—into sculpture? How might a baby’s first words look? […]

"Emerging Venus": Kim Thoman's 3D Printed Sculptures Designed to Embody Dualities

As a fellow native Nebraskan, I feel a kindred connection to artist Kim Thoman’s work. As cliché as it sounds, there is something about the expansive skies and roads that go on forever. Her connection with elemental nature isn’t exclusively Midwestern, but there’s just so much open space where we grew up — begging contemplation. This is […]

Nature is filled with numbers — or possibly numbers are filled with nature. Either way, artists have been exploring the relationships between numerical form and physical form for as long as the human mind has been aware of either. Scholars have long debated the intentionality behind the proportions assigned to constructions such as the Parthenon […]

What an artist creates is a bundle of complexity, all sealed in one: a process, an expression of emotion, sometimes compulsive, repulsive — or breathtaking with its beauty. Most often, the artist is telling you a story, no matter the medium or the tool. Whether for noble, selfish, playful, or unknown reasons, the artist shares […]
