For the solo exhibition of Alicia Framis in the Rabobank headquarters Utrecht, the Netherlands, Joris van Tubergen made an interactive installation using an Ultimaker 3D printer. Together with software developer Miguel Jimenez he developed the ‘Screaming Room’: A stand alone installation where the scream of a visitor is instantly translated into a shape printed by the Ultimaker. Without any intervention of an external operator this installation produces unique art pieces by the visitor: For free! The 3D art piece, made of biodegradable plastic, is a gift to the screamer.
Joris van Tubergen: â€śThis could be the start of a new type of art: Production Art. Every 20 minutes the installation produces unique objects on site. Art pieces by Alicia Framis, but with an intervention of yourself: The form of the piece of is based on your scream.â€ť
The installation will be running for 5 months until September 1st 2012.
