#3DxArt – Ana Marva Fernández: Ancient Play (VIDEO) #3DxMuseums #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning #3D

3D printing artist Ana Marva Fernández shared a recent project she created with children as a part of the Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Mexican American Festival: Ancient Play (VIDEO):

This interactive stop-motion animation workshop was installed for the Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Mexican American Festival. Over 2,000 children attended, and were invited to animate with artifacts sourced from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The  animation stations included 3D prints of Pre-Columbian Mexican rattles, sculptures and dolls that kids played with on various interactive backgrounds. For more footage of their creations visit here.

This work was shared at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the Media Lab Salon 2.0.
