UK artist Mat Collishaw teams with fellow Londoner Sebastian Burdon (who handled the 3D modeling and animation) to create a mesmerizing and impossibly detailed 3D-printed zoetrope composed of over 350 character figures plus props and environmental elements.
Based on Peter Paul Rubens’ early 17th century painting “Massacre of the innocent,” the project took six months to complete.
The 3D Additivist Cookbook :: Call for submissions in any form
Submissions due by 31 May 2015 for online and print publication
The 3D Printer is a metaphor for these weirdest of times: a technology with the capacity to channel creative endeavour, through digital processes, into the reformation of raw matter excavated from ancient geological eras.
Additivism is a proposed new movement in technological and artistic activism that contends with these concerns. The 3D Additivist Manifesto and Cookbook is a project that blurs the boundaries between art, engineering, science fiction, and digital aesthetics. The Manifesto calls for artists, activists, designers, scientists and critical engineers to accelerate the 3D printer and other Additivist technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird.
