Facets is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures, a contemporary interpretation of memorial sculptures of the Monumental Cemetery in Genova, Italy. The work explores the tension and equilibrium between form and matter. Using figurative representation and geometric abstraction, Facets is based on previous Topology studies of the sculptures. While referencing emotionally evocative memorial sculpture, the focus of this series shifts from pure figurative representation to the articulation of matter itself.
The sculptural design aims to preserve diminishing craftsmanship of traditional bird cage making with a contemporary improvisation. It resemble the collective memory of aged people for relieving Alzheimer's Disease. The design brings a bold propaganda of attention to the cultural heritage as well as awareness to elderly through the seamless assimilation between modern technology and traditional craftsmanship. This retrofit resin 3D printed birdcage aims to relieve Alzheimer's Disease progression via triggering social mingling and story telling by elderly in aged homes.
Project EGG is the largest community 3D printed object to date. Hundreds of people form all around the world 3D printed a stone, together forming this unique pavilion. Every 'stone' is unique and different. in return everyone that collaborated in this way got their name in the stone. An object like EGG would have never been made 'the old way'. The building itself is constructed with 4760 stones that are all different. Not one is the same as the other.
The decorative floor lamp Calla Noir, nearly 130cm tall, was printed on a large-scale delta style printer. With the help of new performance materials from Modex 3D filaments and the 3D printing facilities at Linkin Factory, Calla Noir achieved, what just three years ago, seemed like an insurmountable task in 3D printing. Drawing from extensive experiences gained from the past several years of investigation into the potentials of FDM 3D printing, sKY Associative integrated large-scale printing, color gradient printing, and machine code controlled patterning techniques to develop Calla Noir.
enLighten is an hourglass-shaped bedside lamp that tracks your phone use in bed and correspondingly transitions its light color from a pleasant mint green to a throbbing red to make you aware of prolonged phone interaction. The lamp rewards good behavior by transitioning the light in reverse when the screen is turned off for a few minutes. It lets you determine and set goals of time and the apps to track. Through these functions enLighten nudges you to break away from your phone, avoid being over-loaded with online content, be mindful of the passage of time, and prepare you to fall asleep.
Loom is an expandable, adaptable, wearable and flexible 3D printed dress that adapts to all body types and body changes. Since we aren’t able to 3D print fabrics yet, Loom explores the possibilities of creating wearable 3D printed textiles with structures that are designed in relation to function, anatomy, movement, and utility. 3D printing in the fashion industry can be revolutionary and helpful if it is designed with functionality and the human body in mind. Loom proves that 3D printing clothing is more feasible, affordable, adaptable and possible than we think.
