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
Developing Dreams’ interactive 3D printing installation, a giant knitting robot, laser printed trains, and a social media powered photobooth are just some of the highlights at the Brighton Mini Maker Faire at the Corn Exchange on 7 September.
In addition to all the amazing makers in the interactive exhibition, there will be some inspiring speakers and high profile panellists discussing burning issues, which Developing Dreams helped curate. From conductive paint, digital pyrotechnics, toys of the future, and 3D printing to the Raspberry Pi phenomenon and the art of metalworking.
When The Drum, a news site specialising in modern marketing and media, approached us to comment on the state of Brighton’s digital economy, we were delighted to share our opinion with reporter Angela Haggerty.
Developing Dreams is very excited about its involvement in the Brighton Mini Maker Faire 7-8 September 2013. We will help promote the biggest celebration of arts, crafts, science and technology in the South East which is in its third year running. We will also help organise a mini conference, running alongside the main event, with inspiring talks by local and world-renowned makers.
If you have a great project, skill or interactive installation you would like to exhibit, then hurry! The call to makers is open until 7th June.
There are approximately 25,500 self-employed people in Brighton and Hove. This represents 13% of 16-64 year olds which is much higher than the national average of 9.6%. Why is that? Is it the lure of the sea that tempts people into freelancing and self-employment?
To help new and experienced freelancers brush up on their skills and knowledge, the Skiff is hosting a workshop on the Art of Freelancing as part of the Brighton Fringe.
