MODELS, MAQUETTES AND ART OBJECTS: MAKING DATA PHYSICAL

Jane Prophet
2010 unpublished
When I am involved in interdisciplinary collaborations with mathematicians and scientists, physical models and objects have proved to be powerful counterpoints to virtual models and data sets. I will discuss my use of rapid prototyping to make such objects, and contrast that to my earlier screen-based and online artworks. The use of rapid prototyping reconfirms the importance of the material properties of objects in my art practice, but accessing rapid prototyping machines is not easy. I will
more » ... ghlight some of the limitations of the rapid prototyping process and suggest reasons why fine art objects made with these processes are relatively rare.
