Neoreplicants – Digital Art Commission 2012
Neoreplicants brings together the results of a partnership between Exeter Phoenix’s annual Digital Art Commission and the University of Exeter’s Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM). This opportunity gave thirty South West based visual artists the chance to explore the possibilities offered by the emerging technologies of 3D printing to their art making practice.
The results of this opportunity reflect a breadth of interest and enquiry; from those seated in formal, manufacturing process to a more conceptual engagement with this emerging technology. For some this offered a completely new approach to their practice, for others an extension of their existing interest in digital formats.
Many of the works on show exist in the form of experimental sketches, the first step perhaps in understanding the possibilities and potential for further development, while some emerge as finished artworks in their own right.
