this new technology (2014)

the world’s first mechanical 3d printer 

3d printing allows me to create products more swiftly and more efficiently than ever. but these products are not mine. they are merely a product of this new technology. I love technology but how can I reclaim ownership of my work? perhaps by building the machine that produces the work. perhaps by physically powering the machine, which I built, that produces the work. in hopes of rediscovering the sense of having created something, I create.

by lifting a weight of 15 kilograms the machine is turned on. the weight allows me to be still connected with the process. because there is no external force involved like electricity it’s still me that’s making the print. by physically building and powering the machine the products that come out of it are the result of all the energy that has gone into it.

the guiding mechanism 

the shape of the print is controlled by an aluminium wire. the wire can be modified for each print. that results in countless variations of modeling.
