Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) is the first in-depth museum survey dedicated to exploring the impact of computer-assisted methods of production on contemporary art, architecture, and design. Shapeways is partnering with MAD for the exhibition and will host 'OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON,' an educational and interactive space on the Museum's second floor where visitors will be able to experience 3D design and printing firsthand.
Opening in conjunction with the exhibition curated by Ron Labaco on October 16th and running through April 2014, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the 3D printing process and the digital modeling process. Several interactive 3D applications will be on display including work by LIFT Architects, Nervous System, Rhino 3D, and Uformia.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to be 3D scanned with help from Occiptal Labs and 3D printed into mini figurines by an in-house high resolution Formlabs 3D printer or in any of the 30+ materials currently available on Shapeways.
