Among the new technologies artists use to experiment with, 3D printing is in my opinion the most interesting. If you can take the experiments one step further than just playing with consumer 3D printers, it becomes amazing for the artist.
At the time of writing this article, the DX | design exchange in Toronto is holding an exhibition that features giant-size 3D printing pieces. The exhibition goes by the name 3DXL, it’s curated by Sara Nickleson. The work presented consists of various architecture, design, or sciences related experiments.
All the projects show the relevance of 3D printed in today’s world of art and design. They allow the public to engage with this technology and to better understand it. The focus on architecture shows how much different the world of construction might become. In that specific field, 3D printing could open a whole new world by bringing in new materials, textures and structures.
