3T Sponsors Assa Exhibition
Assa Ashuach‘s 80% Air exhibition is opening at Galleria Gracis in Milan tomorrow (12 April 2011). 3T is proud to work alongside Assa, the award winning artist who has been working with Additive Manufacturing over a number of years. The exhibition will feature a number of OPEN objects, which are objects that gallery visitors can co-design with the artist (modifying the shape and colour) at the exhibition and then send straight to production from the gallery. The data for the objects will then be sent here to 3T for us to produce and deliver to the ‘co-designer’.
Announcing the new exhibition, Assa says: “80% Air comes from the notion of ‘air’ as material, and air as a visual statement of reduction and optimisation of both form and structure. We want to keep these products virtual for as long as possible. It is air until someone pays for it to be made.”
Galleria Gracis is hosting the show which runs from 12 to 17 April – 9.30am to 7.00pm.
