VESTIBULE (Circuit II)

Audiovisual Installation on two 55-inch screens, four 24-inch screens. Schockmel’s installation blends cold mechanical complexity from the realm of science fiction with ideas of synthetic biology and the ancient tribal quest for transcendence. He translates political, religious and ecological reflections into a digital 3D world that he crafts with more technical sophistication each time. A universe that is inhabited by unseen entities of artificial intelligence and primal worship.

Osteoid

The goal of this project is to improve the overall healing experience for broken or fractured limbs by focusing on the patient’s comfort and healing time. Osteoid cast offers a new way of tackling these problems by introducing new technologies which enables us to make custom fitted, durable 3D printed medical casts that doesn't itch or smell. The end products are slimmer, lighter, doesn't affect from water and environmentally friendly. This cast can also be combined with, a low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) bone stimulator resulting in faster recovery.

3D Crafts

Alice Le Biez, French young designer has realized a set of three bowls, printed in 3D ceramics. The shape of each bowls reminds traditional ceramics technique. She created with her project an illusion of a hand-made bowl by the design but also by the making process. Her 3D printing object explores the link between traditional skills and new technologies and demonstrates that designer can use the new technologies as a tool to go further in their work and discover a new field of creation.
