A Yearlong Public Art Project to 3D Print 2,017 Roosters #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

Acquiring a 3D-printed rooster from the “Make and Take” installation in Boston’s Chinatown Plaza on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenwayrequires a bit of luck. The small objects are printed continuously, dropping into a slot when complete. Although artist and engineer Chris Templeman designed his project with ample space for accumulating roosters, visitors have been arriving day and night to collect the free birds.

“We had no idea that people would come at all hours to take them, it’s awesome,” Templeman told Hyperallergic. The “Make and Take” machine, made in collaboration with New American Public Art, is housed in an eight-foot-tall polycarbonate kiosk, positioned just before the red gate to the plaza. It was launched on Chinese New Year in January in honor of the Year of the Rooster. The interactive art machine follows previous Greenway Conservancy projects based on the Chinese zodiac, including Kyu Seok Oh’s handmade paper “Wandering Sheep” for 2015’s Year of the Goat, and Don Kennell’s steel “Monkey See” for 2016’s Year of the Monkey.
