Artist Exploration 2: Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger
For the upcoming project using a 3D digital file I did an exploration of artists who use 3D printing technology in their practice.
Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger are architects who use digital fabrication technology to construct an immersive space out of sandstone. Their large scale yet incredibly intricate works of art are consuming. It also reminded me of the intricate shrines I'd seen in Japan, especially around Nikko. I find the interdisciplinary nature of their work, combining art with engineering and architecture especially interesting and am excited for the applications it holds like restoring old buildings. I would also like to explore the applications of 3D printing to other fields. Seeing how different the application looks in biology and architecture, I would love to see what other applications can be sought.
