Digital Natives is Matthew Plummer-Fernandez's recent work using 3D scanning and 3D printing service from i.materialse. In this Digital Natives set, everyday items such as toys and detergent bottles are 3D scanned using a digital camera and subjected to algorithms that distort, abstract and taint them into new primordial forms. These are then 3D printed in colour resin/sandstone.
I am currently at the beginning of my ongoing 3D scan->remix->print-in-colour process development. These objects hopefully help capture the process in its early stages, whilst the algorithms and forms are still fairly crude, yet appreciable.
The algorithms are executed within two software 3D interfaces; co_former for transforming shape and #ccc (colour co-creator) for generating colour. These output files are done with Processing, and libraries Hemesh, ControlP5, and Toxiclibs and then ready for 3D printing in colour.
The objects will be on display at the 3D Print Show, London, October 19-22.
