WHO: Artists currently working in any medium who are interested in investigating ways that this technology could be used to develop or bring new possibilities and ways of making into their practice. No previous experience is required but basic computer skills will be beneficial.
WHAT: Exeter Phoenix has teamed up with the University of Exeter’s Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing to offer artists the opportunity to explore the possibilities of making work in the emerging technologies of 3D printing. Also known as rapid prototyping, desktop fabrication or additive manufacturing, this is a manufactoring process whereby a real object is created from a 3D computer-modelled design. The digital model is sent to a 3D printer that can print the design, layer by layer, in a variety of materials to form a real object.
WHEN: Deadline: Friday 18 May
DETAILS: This opportunity will include the following stages: A day long workshop which will introduce artists to the technology, software and potential uses of additive layer manufacturing. A further workshop will develop skills in the relevant design software to create a 3D design. All participating artists will then get the chance to develop and produce a new piece of three dimensional work at CALM. All works will go on display and artists may submit a further commission proposal. One artist will be selected to develop a further commission and exhibition opportunity.
Deadline: 18 May 2012 ** Deadline expired**
