Sydney Sie’s playfully weird series of diorama’s, filled with 3D printed printed busts, toys, squiggles and lettering.
For the collaborative ‘Project: Materialize’, Taiwanese experimental artist and photographer, Sydney Sie, was let loose with a 3D printer courtesy of manufacturers, Atom. The concept was conceived ‘to show how 3D printing can enhance self-expression for anyone’ and demonstrate that ‘artists are no longer limited to traditional craft techniques to produce intricate physical objects’.
With the help of Atom’s design team Sie created a series of three colourful and abstract diorama’s – fabricating an oddball physical, 3D landscape which she then photographed. In the images, she uses colour, light and form ‘to accelerate the viewer’s imagination into parallel universes of abstract thought’.
