Hey All,

This Thursday night (October 10th) at 7pm check out a lecture by Chris 
Manzione on his artwork using augmented reality and 3D printed objects at 
CCAS in Sacramento. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EN-q3IfCXg

Looks like an interesting event!



Christopher Manzione’s new work is a dynamic blend of high-tech augmented 
reality, animation, and 3D printed sculptures. The work questions an 
object’s origin and presence in a world of ubiquitous digital and network 
technologies. Manzione’s 3D printed sculptures seamlessly integrate digital 
and analog processes. His augmented digital images challenge notions of a 
polarity between “real” and “digital” objects by simultaneously manifesting 
as physical and virtual, demonstrating no preference or hierarchy for one 
experience over the other.

The imagery throughout the show is derived from 3D collages created by the 
artist using everyday objects to recycled studio materials. The collages 
are then scanned into the computer to create 3D models. The models are 
translated across multiple mediums ranging from rendered 2D digital prints, 
animation, augmented reality, and 3D printing. The 3D augmented reality 
works are not only reliant on the 2D prints on which they load, but also 
the viewer’s smartphones. While the prints themselves focus on form and 
surface, the sculptures are made viewable only through the screen. The 
exhibition includes six large digital prints, one animation, and multiple 
3D printed sculptures.
