At the American Museum of Natural History’s two-week camp Capturing Dinosaurs: Reconstructing Extinct Species Through Digital Fabrication, a group of teens learned the processes and tools used by palaeontologists for studying dinosaur bones and digitally reconstructing them.
And we got to tag along for some of it. It all begins in the deep underbelly of the museum, where campers are given access to an entire library collection of dinosaur bones to analyse. Before attendees start scanning their fossils, the museum shows them how actual palaeontologists clean bones and scan them with million-dollar machines. The most remarkable part of the camp is that the kids scan, model, and rebuild these dinosaurs with no previous experience in the 3D printing field.

Interactive Art and Computational Design, Spring 2012 » Billy Keyes – Final Project – SketchSynth. SketchSynth: A Drawable OSC Control Surface SketchSynth lets anyone create their own control panels with just a marker and a piece of paper.
Once drawn, the controller sends Open Sound Control (OSC) messages to anything that can receive them; in this case, a simple synthesizer running in Pure Data. It’s a fun toy that also demonstrates the possibilities of adding digital interaction to sketched or otherwise non-digital interfaces. Background Ever since I was little, I’ve been fascinated by control panels. Replicating a 19th Century Statue with 21st Century Tech #3dthursday. April 18, 2013 AT 1:00 pm Check out David Huerta’s write-up “Replicating a 19th Century Statue with 21st Century Tech” over at the Brooklyn Museum blog, and follow through to the full article for details of the challenges he has faced experimenting with photogrammetry tools for creating digital models of real-world sculptural pieces: My first exposure to the world of 3D printing took place in 2009 approximately 500 feet under the Earth’s surface in a former missile silo in the Washington state desert.
There, three founders of a new Brooklyn-based 3D printer company hosted a workshop on building a 3D printer kit as part of Toorcamp, a nerdy version of Burning Man. At the end of the kit’s 4-hour assembly we printed out some tiny jewelry boxes. At the time 3D printing seemed to me like a novel technology for hackers with lots of potential, but not one I had any specific use for. Read more. Alive. Vincent & Emily - Two robots in a relationship struggle and emotional conflict. Created by Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler and Carolin Liebl, Vincent & Emily are two self-willed robots who are in a bizarre conflict between each other and their surroundings.
The robots are designed to explore solitude of a partner relationship and their impulses. Mimicking humans, using sounds and gestures, the robots have speakers motions controlled by their motors. In addition, the creatures capture sounds and movements via sensors and react on those signals with own expressions. Just like in each human relationship it comes to misunderstandings: If Vincent sends positive signals by up and down movements, it is possible that Emily interprets even those signals as negative. THROUGH A SCANNER, SKULPTURHALLE by Cosmo Wenman. My name is Cosmo Wenman, and for the last year I've been 3D scanning artwork in museums and using those scans to 3D print life-size reproductions. Resinance - Interaction, smart materials and swarm behaviour. Realised by the students of MA of Advanced Studies class at the Chair for CAAD and supervised by Manuel Kretzer, Resinance is part of an ongoing series of projects exploring the potential use of smart materials in an architectural context.
Influenced by the behaviour of simple organic life forms, in its assembly the project represented an ecology of functional units that could both work autonomously but also in coordination with their neighbouring units. It consists of 40 active elements that are gradually changing their surface color in response to human touch. To make these slow transformation visible, each device is equipped with a second actuator, providing direct response through shivers and vibrations. Every four elements were connected through a control unit that formally resembled the rest of the objects but without the ability to change color.

Art Institute Chicago Collaborates With Museum Lovers For Ongoing Digital Curation Effort #3dthursday. April 25, 2013 AT 5:00 am Liz Neely, the Director of Digital Information and Access at the Art Institute of Chicago, has been doing a great job encouraging visitors to participate in capturing digital models of their collection, including the Saint John the Baptist sculpture above, captured by Christian Oiticica and posted just a few hours before I put together this post.
While several museums, including the Met Museum and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco have held special events for the purpose of exploring the possibilities of scanning and sharing replicas of work, Neely boldly pushes this curatorial practice into an ongoing collaboration between museum and those who love the museum. Here is the message Neely shared on Thingiverse about this project: Art Institutue of ChicagoThe Art Institute of Chicago is a world-renowned art museum housing one of the largest permanent collections in the United States.

As Shelley mentioned in her previous post, 3D printing is a hot topic in the museum world right now, with some exciting experimentation happening around the world. Just this week I was at a meeting at the American Museum of Natural History, hearing about some of the exciting 3D printing projects they’re working on with some of their teen programs. In our use it made sense to start with the Sensory Tour, our monthly tour for visitors with visual impairments as well as anyone who wants to experience art using more than just their sense of sight. We continually had great success using raised line drawings (they’re just what they sound like; the lines are literally raised from the surface of the paper) to help people feel contours of two-dimensional art. Why not try the same thing with one more dimension in the mix?

Communiqué de presseMohamed BourouissaL'Utopie d'August Sander Remarqué pour ses compositions photographiques de jeunes des cités, pour son film Temps mort qui traite du quotidien d'un détenu via des échanges vidéo par téléphones mobiles interposés, Mohamed Bourouissa investit avec ce projet un autre territoire, celui des demandeurs d'emploi.
Autre contexte, autre tentative. A près d'un siècle de distance de son illustre prédécesseur le photographe August Sander, lancé dans l'ambitieuse tentative de dresser «un portrait contemporain de l'homme allemand», Mohamed Bourouissa, quant à lui, se propose de faire le portrait de personnes à la croisée de l'intégration et de l'exclusion sociale. II a ainsi mis en place un protocole artistique qui favorise l'échange et la rencontre entre des mondes, des réalités qu'a priori tout sépare, pour travailler ensemble et faire œuvre commune.

For the team from the Met Museum — America’s most iconic museum, a world-beloved, forward-thinking art institution — the dream is to collaborate with cutting-edge artists and DIY-makers, to discover how one might bring the relevant, emerging art practice of 3D capture and 3D printing to bear on the task of enlarging the public conversation about works in their permanent collection.

The Smithsonian is using 3D printing and scanning to increase access to its collection. Two people, a 3D scanner, and 137 million objects. The Smithsonian Institution has recently begun using 3D scanning and 3D printing to digitize and, in some cases, reproduce objects in their collection. At any given moment, only about 2% of the Smithsonian’s archive of 137 million objects are available to the public. Adam Metallo and Vince Rossi, the 3D digitization coordinators, are trying to make more of those objects available to more people using digital fabrication.
