#Additivism: An Encounter with The Fluid Outside
A talk and Q&A session by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke about The 3D Additivist Manifesto + The 3D Additivist Cookbook and the artist’s own research and practice in relationship to #Additivism, activism, and critical/poetic approaches to 3D printing.
3D printing promises to become a widespread material language, allowing anything that can be stored as a digital template to be realised. During the 2-day #Additivism workshop Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke explain how 3D fabrication can be thought of as the critical framework of #Additivism: a movement that aims to disrupt material, social, computational, and metaphysical realities through provocation, collaboration, and ‘weird’ / science fiction thinking.
