Named as one of the “top 20 most influential architects to shape our future”, Neri Oxman is a Professor of Media, Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab where she directs the Mediated Matter research group. Her group explores how digital design and fabrication technologies mediate between material and the environment to radically transform the design and construction of objects, buildings and systems.
Just opened at the Pompidou Center in Paris is her latest work – part of an exhibition entitled ‘Multiversités Créatives’ Oxman’s ‘Imaginary Beings – Mythologies of the Not Yet’ features 18 Prototypes for the Human Body – all 3D printed on the Objet Connex Multi-Material 3D Printer!
Above is in an in-depth interview with Neri herself, as we explore the roots of her artistic passion, the inspiration behind her incredible work and the manufacturing and design revolution now being enabled by 3D printing!
These are my two favorites of the 18 models: both 3D printed on the Objet Connex500, our largest multi-material machine:
