    A recent graduate of the Shenkar College of Design, emerging Israeli fashion designer Noa Raviv has already made waves with the debut of her fashion collection “Hard Copy” — a project that brings cutting-edge architectural and sculptural techniques to haute couture. Raviv worked with 3D printing company Stratasys to develop digital models that would serve as the inspiration for her work. She purposely chose the defective 3D models her software generated — ones that would be too structurally unsound to actually 3D print — to inspire her clothing patterns. The artist says she was interested in the idea of turning something that only exists in the digital realm into a physical object, surpassing the limitations of the 3D printer with the human hand. Dominated by grids that encase organic patterns, the collection articulates humanity’s precarious position between nature and technology.

    Humo by Studio Nocc for Designer Box N°14

    Humo is an atypical object imagined by Studio Nocc - the creative power duo of Juan Pablo Naranjo and Jean Christophe Orthlieb. For Designer Box, they explored humour within this object whose essence is to play with fire!

    Censer or ashtray, Humo holds in the smoke, transforming a volatile matter into complementary poetry to the object.

    Sandra Hoyn - The Fighting Children

    Artist’s statement:

    "Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand. Around the world, it is respected as one of the most demanding and intense martial arts. For one thing, Muay Thai is referred to as the Art of Eight Limbs because it involves striking one’s opponent using hands, elbows, knees and shins rather than just hands (and feet).

    Many people with limited economic opportunities choose (are forced?) to earn their living from the sport. Thus, muay matches between children begin at the age of six. These bouts are popular with tourists and Thai bettors alike, making them a part of everyday life.

    There is no minimum age for muay fighters. Two or three times a month—when other children might be playing soccer or learning to play the piano—these children are fighting for a pittance and pushing themselves to their physical and mental limits.

    Very few of them will ever become rich, popular boxing idols. Even if they do find success in the ring, their careers will likely be over at the age of 25.”

    Prototyping 3D printing method from HPI reduces construction time of model making by a tenth creating wireframe versions of forms - video embedded below:

    WirePrint prints 3D objects as wireframe previews. By extruding filament directly into 3D space instead of printing layer-wise, it achieves a speed-up of up to a factor of 10, allowing designers to iterate more quickly in the early stages of design …

    Even though considered a rapid prototyping tool, 3D printing is so slow that a reasonably sized object requires printing overnight. This slows designers down to a single iteration per day. With WirePrint, we propose to instead print low-fidelity wireframe previews in the early stages of the design process. Wireframe previews are 3D prints in which surfaces have been replaced with a wireframe mesh. Since wireframe previews are to scale and represent the overall shape of the 3D object, they allow users to quickly verify key aspects of their 3D design, such as the ergonomic fit.

    English artist Chris Wood creates glass wall-panels that showcase maze-like structures that give the illusion of depth and brilliance through the glass’ interaction with natural and artificial light sources. The artist’s usage of small, reflective, dichroic (meaning “two color”) pieces of glass lets her easily create complex patterns of light and shade; the colors and textures that derive from these structures change in accordance to the position of the viewer and the angle of the light source, making her work an ever-changing, almost magical and intriguing phenomenon. Read more on Hi-Fructose.

    James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace

    The abstract pyramidal structure complements the natural light present at sunrise and sunset, creating a mesmerizing light show that connects the beauty of the natural world with the surrounding campus. This experience is enhanced by an LED light performance that projects onto the 72-by-72-foot thin white roof, which offers views to the sky through a 14-by-14-foot opening. Additionally, the Turrell Skyspace is acoustically engineered for musical performances and serves as a laboratory for music school students, as it stands adjacent to the Shepher School of Music on the Rice University campus in , .
