Armed with the knowledge of 3D modeling and 3D printing, a background in architecture, and the will to liberate his creative mind, Korean designer Se Yoon Park has created a stunning art installation made up of 3D-printed trees. His work imitates the organic structure of trees and consists of many small geometric elements. Dive into the world of “Light, Darkness, and the Tree”.
Nick Ervinck is no stranger to 3D Printing. He’s been using the technology to create his fantastical sculptures for years, blending the digital with the traditional. His latest 3D creation is NESURAK, which featured as part of his GNI-RI exhibition at the AXIOM Art & Science Gallery Lab in Tokyo.
Artist duo L+S were commissioned with creating a piece of art for Ullerntunet, a nursing home in Oslo, Norway. Their concept included installing a two-part sculpture in the grounds of the center, made up of a four-meter-high tree and its replica in bronze. Here is how the artists realized their vision based on a 3D scan of the original tree, as well as using 3D Printing and TetraShell investment casting to create the sculpture.
Mary Visser, Professor of Art and Brown Chair holder at the Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, is one of the pioneers of using 3D Printing in art and sculpture. Her lifelong passion for sculpture and her constant quest to enhance her artistic medium with advanced technology has made her one of the most fascinating designers in 3D Printing today – and an inspirational figure to any woman with an interest in the 3D printing industry. Read all about her thoughts on 3D Printing in our interview with her below.
As part of Chamber’s latest collection, entitled “Progressland” and curated by Andrew Zuckerman, artist Peter Marigold will be exhibiting his 3D Printed sculpture “Trunk”. Situated in New York, Chamber is a unique space in a city bursting with creative energy. A self-described “21st century cabinet of curiosities”, each collection in the art gallery is curated by a different artist who brings their unique perspective through the reliquaries, works of art and experimental designs they choose to display.
Belgian artist Nick Ervinck explores the boundaries between the physical and the imaginary, the traditional and the modern, architecture and sculpture. Constantly pushing the frontiers on what is spatially possible, he is a pioneer in the use of 3D Printing in art. Although we first collaborated with him in 2008 for his artwork GNIURKS_S, Materialise had the honor of collaborating with him again for his two newest creations: LAPIRSUB and NOITALS.
