About the Exhibit
MATERIALIZE at the Shemer Art Center, opens to the public October 17th and continues through November 27th. The exhibition strives to educate artists and the public about new digital tools used to create art. Artists were challenged to create original works using the capabilities of 3D printers which has resulted in an exciting variety of objects. 3D making solid objects from conceptualized ideas. The idea is computer generated to an image that is fed to a 3D printer that lays down thin layers of material to build the object. Artists have found that it presents exciting opportunities to explore the 3D dimension.
