(WallPaper.com)  Imprimer Le Monde’ (‘Print the World’),is an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, where a striking selection of 3D-printed objects reflects the diverse and ambitious visions of designers, artists and architects. The show presents myriad entry points for visitors depending on their existing knowledge of the disruptive technology.
Overseen by chief curator Marie-Ange Brayer and associate curator Olivier Zeitoun, the show does a fine job of alternating the focus between process and product. Certain examples maintain a connection to artisanal workmanship (the Bouroullec brothers integrate 3D-printed nodes into a geometric chestnut wood screen). Others illustrate the actual concept of additive manufacturing – how machines are programmed to construct something layer by layer based on complex algorithms and computer-assisted design.
