For many months, the Shemer Art Center has been preparing for what is currently a relative rarity: an art show featuring 3D printing.
It’s been a long time coming, so the opening was particularly exciting for many of us. I have three sculptures in the show – Simple Planes With Aquamarine Stripe, Holy Cannoli and SpiritHole Sunset – which features the work of more than 20 artists from around the United States.
It’s fascinating to see some of the materials that people are printing in, including plaster, and what they are printing with it.
The show also features other computer-generated work, including Max Chandler‘s robot-created paintings, and Mary Neubauer‘s data-generated metal works.
The opening was a hoot, packed with curious people as well as artists, inventors, animators and other creatives who wanted to get an idea of what this new technology is all about. We even heard fights broke out in the parking lot over spaces!
I had my Cerberus 250 running during the show and was peppered with questions all night. The folks at the Shemer finally politely asked us to leave about 9:30 p.m., or I think we could have chatted and exchanged ideas all night!
There are several talks related to the show, which runs through Thursday, November 27. I speak on Saturday, November 8 about my experiences as a sculptor using 3D printing. For more information about the show, visit my Events page and the the Press page, which has a list of all the associated events.
Although I couldn’t include all of the work in the show, I hope you enjoy this video visit:
