Laurie Anderson joins the growing number of artists creating original work on the MakerBot Thing-O-Matic 3D printer, with her latest exhibit, “Forty-Nine Days in the Bardo.” The multimedia exhibition is running now through November 19th at the Fabric Workshop & Museum in Philadelphia.
MakerBot Industries performed a 3D scan on a clay model of Laurie Anderson’s dog Lola, creating a virtual 3D object. From this object, MakerBot printed out over twenty plastic models of the scan using the Thing-O-Matic, MakerBot’s affordable desktop 3D printer. The pack of plastic dogs is on display in the FWM lobby, alongside a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic.
Other artists who have employed MakerBots in their pieces include Micah Ganske, Takeshi Murata, Marius Waltz, and Kyle McDonald. Recently praised by The Wall Street Journal as the “latest hit on the art fair circuit,” MakerBot Industries’ Artist in Residence program has given all types of artists—from painters to animators— the chance to work within a new creative medium.
MakerBot Industries has also partnered with The New Museum Store in NYC for a 3D design challenge, aiming to push the concept of the “derivative,” by improving on established design conventions. The creator of the most innovative design will win a Thing-O-Matic kit, a deluxe membership to the New Museum and a chance to have their design on display in the New Museum’s front window.
