Now that we have had a chance to take a deep breath after the Brighton Digital Festival, we have put together a few thoughts, facts and figures about our 3D scanning and printing art installation.
We managed to pull off Break The Mould in partnership with tech start-up 3Dify and Italian artist Emilia Telese in a very short period of time (approx. four months). It was an interactive installation where people could walk inside a giant womb to get scanned and digitised, and then watch themselves being ‘reborn’ on a 3D printer as a mini sculpture.
PLEASE NOTE: We are now fully booked for the Brighton Digital Festival! You can still visit the installation and see a 3D body scanner and 3D printers in action, but unfortunately, we don’t have any spaces left to get people scanned and print little figures of them.
Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn for regular updates.
With the help of Italian installation artist Emilia Telese and some technological wizardry from 3Dify, Developing Dreams are dragging the concept of the photo booth kicking and screaming into the age of 3D printing and low cost 3D scanning.
We are getting very excited about Break the Mould, our interactive 3D printing installation. We have been working with Brighton based Italian artist Emilia Telese and tech wizards 3Dify on this.
People will be invited to walk into a 3D body scanner in the shape of a giant woman’s body to get scanned and get a small sculpture of themselves printed. The installation will make its debut at the Brighton Maker Faire on 7 September and will be on tour during the Brighton Digital Festival: Continue reading
Kati Byrne from Developing Dreams was presenting at the Business and Pleasure Summit in Brighton on the current state of 3D printing and a glimpse into the future.
The presentation was fantastic, very insightful and thought-provoking, despite internet access going down. Thanks to all those who attended.
The difference between these two articles on 3D printing from in utero scans caught my eye recently. Same process, same technology, but while one seems slightly freaky and outlandish, the other seems humanistic and innovative. Don’t think you’ll have any trouble spotting which is which… Continue reading
To take one pound of equipment into outer space costs around $10,000, according to Autodesk’s director of strategic research. It doesn’t take an accountant to figure out why governments are already ploughing swathes of cash into researching the application of 3D printing in a zero gravity environment. Continue reading
If you think that 3D printing is just about making tiny trinkets from expensive source material then this one is for you. Continue reading
