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.
