FROM THE ARTIST:
Just as Andy Warhol questioned the culture of consumerism in the 60s, I am questioning it today. With 3d printing creating the potential for objects to go the way of the pirated music, we as a culture must reevaluate our position as makers/consumers. The music industry has proven the digital age cannot be broken so we, as object makers, must find a new way to market goods to consumers. Just as Warhol drew attention to the bombardment of advertising in the 60s we find ourselves now in another commercial revolution. What will happen when you can pirate objects? Or better yet when Open Source objects are the norm?
This installation is a commentary on 3d printing. From one, comes many.
