Digital Grotesque: Kunst mit 3D Drucker vom Voxeljet aus Augsburg
From Newsweek: Jan 3, 2014 Issue
...The printer, designed by the German company Voxeljet, can etch with accuracy up to .13 mm layer resolution, meaning that it can essentially replicate the handiwork - if not the divine inspiration - of a master Renaissance craftsman. Hence the Grotto's ubiquitous folds, curves, and contortions, which look like the ancient growths of an alabaster cave.
...Hansmeyer and Dillenburger spent a year crafting the algorithms that would create 260 million baroque surfaces in this exhibition.
