Projects - L’Artisan Electronique - VimperatorIn L’Artisan Électronique, pottery, one of the oldest artisanal techniques for making utilitarian objects, is combined with new digital media. However, the installation still clearly refers to the artisanal process of working in clay. Unfold’s ceramic 3d printer has a great resonance with the way traditional potters handled clay by building a form out of coils of clay. The virtual pottery wheel on the other hand, is a digital tool to ‘turn’ forms in thin air. L’Artisan Electronique is an installation commissioned by Z33 for the exhibition Design by Performance and developed in collaboration with Tim Knapen and the RepRap community. L'Artisan Electronique was in exhibitions in Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Art Fair), Jerusalem (Israel Museum), Rotterdam (CBK), Enkhuizen (Zuiderzeemuseum), Brussels (Design Flanders Gallery), London (Aram Gallery), ...

Twentieth — Art and designPropeller Propulsion by TheoJansen on Shapeways - Vimperator[Note: This propeller propulsion add-on does not include a 3D printed Strandbeest, which should be bought seperately! This propeller only fits the PARVUS!] Theo Jansen’s 3D printed Strandbeest continues to evolve with the addition of a Propeller Propulsion system! The 3D printed Strandbeests can now walk autonomously, powered by the wind, just like Theo's full-scale Strandbeests. The new propeller add-on gives new and existing owners of these kinetic sculptures a new way to set them in motion! The propeller addition is available as a separate kit, which can be mounted on the 3D printed Strandbeests. The 3D printed Strandbeest is sold separately. A few tips to consider: - Please look at our instruction video on mounting the Propeller Propulsion add-on, here. - After mounting the Propeller Propulsion add-on it is best left mounted.
