Digital Natives by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Digital Natives01

Everyday items such as toys and watering can be 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.

The objects were first on display at the 3D Print Show, London, October 19-

This project was coded with processing using Hemesh, ControlP5, and Toxiclibs libraries.
