ART and 3D Technology

We often find that everything associated with the world of 3D technology is seen as something; perhaps as a product designer in some cases, but away from the art at all times. A 3idem think that the artwork and 3D technology can be complementary. In some cases, can lead to new expressions that have not yet been developed in others can be used for dissemination. We must not forget that tools and technologies are in the hands of these artists can bring new expressions hitherto unknown. At the risk seem pedantic should first establish that we could understand it art or a work of art.

Art is an entity in constant evolution, it is a living entity. Its forms and manifestations categories also require interaction with living beings interpret. Art should separate itself from the aesthetic experience, because the vision of a landscape or a bird in the field would also be an aesthetic experience, yet must also avoid considering all art aesthetic manifestation.

So where are we now? the concept of art changed in western art to be subject to rules to the current concept where art would produce beauty. Beauty that did not exist before the work and that the condition set separates things that are beautiful as the landscape or the bird mentioned earlier.

Leaving aside the theoretical concept art, we think that the aesthetic experience is what defines the work of art created. Therefore, we see several ways in which 3D technology can be used in the artistic world. We must emphasize the importance flee the concept of “fashion” and that includes today abused to get the sense of the term “3D”. Suppose an example where marketing is associated with certain cafes Japanese fan art ephemera with cream cafes. To sell the concept he called “coffee 3D” thus achieving notoriety by playing with public expectations, but in fact what they do is far from 3D.
A proven case of new technology applied to the world of art has helped to enrich it is photography. In the late nineteenth century was a new technique surprising that only limited to reproduce reality, but as the technique was experienced and dominated by becoming artists became recognized as an art form more private galleries, collectors. In fact, in 1910 the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo (New York) was one of the first museums to include photography in the art collection. This leads implicitly answer the question: If the machine involves technology or creative process that devalues the value of work? Well, we think absolutely not. Achieving technical skill on the part of artists to assimilate these new tools are as important as achieving manual skills to make traditional works such as sculpture or painting.
On the other hand, the reproduction of copies of art in limited series with 3D printing technology (in which specializes 3idem) is not like when an artist make limited copies of a statue with a mold made lost wax? perhaps the fear is that the public do not find a piece of art not to be done “manually”, but this is like comparing the paintings to photography. They are different techniques and can be radically different results.

Suppose a sculptor who decides to learn to work the sculptural technique in 3D and learn to work directly with program design sculpted in 3D such as the 123D Sculpt, 3DsMax or Blender to name just three examples of the many out there. Can act directly on the work like a block of clay or stone.
Once completed can give the print material in the most convenient given the versatility of 3D printing. Even you can play with color printers as we have in 3idem.

Another case is made directly from the scanner works of art and reproductions thereof. In this case the artist can work directly with hands that suits the material and then the scanner is limited to the series. We find here a combination of traditional techniques and new.

Beyond these implications are current jobs based 3D printing that are quite interesting and worthy of remark. So emphasize works like those of Eyal Gevers (http://www.eyalgever.com/) that creates 3D digital models of objects, makes simulate violent clashes and by choosing a “frame” simulation makes for 3D printing it. Can really capture moments that only women movement.

The search for the embodiment of time and space travel also proposed collective ART + COM in his project “The Invisible Shape of Things Past” by registering on the position of a camera at the time of recordings are now being run things as the camera caught, even after 3D printing result.

Other artists make three-dimensional objects from sound waves, seismographic records or other data that have a certain emotional content. Another approach would be for example that part of Sofie Khan faces and bodies of 3D scans and prints all breaking them like a classical sculpture could treat (http://www.sophiekahn.net/).
As we see, experimentation, new forms and trends are born with 3D printing technology. If you want to experience you can count 3idem to print your works will surely be rewarding and exciting!!!
