Digital Natives 2012 z-corp powder composite and z-corp tinted binder Everyday items such as toys and a watering can are 3D scanned using a digital camera and subjected to algorithms that distort, abstract and taint them into new primordial vessel forms. In some cases only close inspection reveals traces inherited from their physical predecessors. These are then 3D printed on a z-corp printer. Vessels are arguably the lowest common denominator for man-made objects across all cultures, these objects however have no storage function other than to embody the stored digital data that describes them.  Development credits: The algorithms are executed within my own made software 3D interfaces; co_former for transforming shape and #ccc (colour co-creator) for generating colour. These output files ready for 3D printing in colour. I’ve coded these with Processing, and libraries Hemesh, ControlP5, and Toxiclibs.  The objects were first on display at the 3D Print Show, London, October 19-22.  Featured on: Creative Applications, Dezeen, Creators Project, FastCo Design, Rhizome.
