18 Prototypes of the Human Body – A Look at Neri Oxman’s Incredible 3D Printed Works

This past May, I was fortunate enough to see up close Architect and MIT Professor Neri Oxman’s exhibit entitled ‘Imaginary Beings, Mythologies of the Not Yet’ at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.  Her exhibit, which features 18 prototypes of the human body, were all created on the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer and attacted considerable attention from artists, designers and members of the public, who turned out in droves – despite the lousy weather.

In this blog post video above we take a close-up look at the exhibit and speak to a number of people to glean their reactions to the unique, one-of-a-kind works on display. Enjoy.

    It’s interesting, as I got through this blog i notice that videos convey a lot of what words normally would, it seems essential, especially for 3D works, to show them off. I remember back, before 2004, when there was no YouTube, not videos online like today. Now, we take it for granted.

    As YouTube became, services really grew around it, digital cameras offered video, where they didn’t before and internet speeds had to increase for the bandwidth demand, I expect in a similar time period 3D printing will have achieved a similar effect.
