Big 3D the printing sculpture is established in the wood of the USA
At present passes creation process 3D a printing sculpture in studio Smith | Alain on 3D printers of the first series of Type a Machines devices. Smith | Alain participates in the residence of the Project 387 located in an environment of Mendosino from August 4 to August 18, 2013. The project 387 is the residence of the versatile program which provided to 6 designers to execute their project intended for a quiet comfortable place among huge Californian mamontovy trees.
In heart of the sekvoyny wood in the area of 607 028,5 m? they joint efforts will establish huge 3D printing construction installation: Echoviren. The Echoviren size makes 3,05 m x 3,05 m x 2,44 m of Echoviren represents a huge trellised fencing which is essentially allocated against a natural palette of red and green flowers of the wood. Being about or in a design, the viewer compares itself with her size, also notices supernatural similarity natural with the artificial: huge sizes, lack of a floor and porous structure of mesh walls and surrounding priberezhny landscape.
Echoviren was designed, 3D is written and collected under supervision of painters. Echoviren consists from 585 3D the printing parts which sizes vary from 12,70 cm x 22,86 cm x 20,32 cm to 1.27 cm x 22,86 cm x 22,86 see. Details 3D were written on eight 3D Type a Machines printers: 4 standard series 1 and four big series 1-X ‘Vert’. Architects started 3D to print first June, 2013 – for this day they were engaged in it in an extent of 10000 hours, having used 64 kg of the material PLA. The general is long PLA fibers for details reaches 21,32 km, according to the company.
Being absolutely another’s in space of the wood, Echoviren is a place for contemplation of a landscape, the nature, and in relation to them. It is focused on a nature essence not proceeding from belief of biosystem, and палимпсеста. The hybridized message of work underlines the long configurations hidden in modern landscapes. Echoviren specifies dynamic development of an ecosystem with natural and artificial interventions: interaction of the person and the nature which in an extent of centuries changed under the influence of technologies.
