Exeter Phoenix has teamed up with the University of Exeter’s Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM) to offer artists the opportunity to explore the possibilities of making work in the emerging technologies of 3D printing.
3D printing also known as rapid prototyping, desktop fabrication or additive manufacturing, is a manufacturing process whereby a real object is created from a 3D computer-modelled design. The digital model is sent to a 3D printer that can print the design, layer by layer, in a variety of materials to form a real object.
Exeter Phoenix are looking for artists working in any medium who are interested in investigating ways that this technology could be used to develop or bring new possibilities and ways of making into their practice.
Selected artists will undertake workshops where they will be introduced to the technology and software and develop skills to create a 3D design leading to the creation of a new piece of work at CALM. All works will go on display and artists may submit a further commission proposal.
Deadline for entry: 18 May.
