TECHNOLOGY MEETS ART: 3-D Printing Showcased @ the Museum of Arts & Design

Ronald T. Labaco, Marcia Docter Curator at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in New York, integrates 3-D printing, 3-D scanning, and computerized milling machines (CNCs) in his upcoming art exhibition “Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital” opening October 16 at MAD. Constructed by these software technologies, Labaco showcases sculptures of architecture, furniture, as well as people from artists including Lucas Maassen and Dries Verbuggen and Francois Brument. “Brain Wave Sofa” by Maassen and Verbuggen was created with Maassen’s brain waves, captured by an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine. Maassen’s brain waves, shaped by thinking of the word “comfort,” was rendered into a 3-D image, and later, was carved into a 3-D foam copy of the image. Artist Francois Brument utilizes a special algorithim in his 2009 piece, “Vase #44.” Museumgoers have the opportunity to speak into a microphone, where their voices are translated into a 3-D image of a vase. The volume and duration of the speaker’s voice determine the texture, height, depth, and width of the vase. Brument’s interactive piece allows museumgoers to experience how technology mixes with art. Pieces by Maassen and Verbuggen as well as Brumen will be displayed in addition to other objects showcased at new MAD exhibition. Labaco not only wants the public to experience 3-D technology through art and design, but hopes that it will bring people together by the 21st century medium.
