3D Printed Records: We Talk to the Creator About Her Work, 3D Printing Potential

3D printing is transforming digital information into objects in ways we haven’t seen before. However, a project has been making the rounds through online media partly because it recalls a familiar object: the musical record. Amanda Ghassaei’s 3D-printed record sounds crude, but it makes clear the connection of data to printed, physical form: take a music file, make a printed album. Amanda writes: I’m a really big fan of your blogs and I thought you might like a project I’ve recently published on instructables: I managed to actually print a working (although quite noisy) record on a 3D printer. I …

In 36,000 Photos, Melting Ice Animations Set to Silky-Smooth Mimi Goese + Ben Neill Music

It’s hard to say enough good things about the music video for “Persephone” by Mimi Goese and Ben Neill, so let’s keep it short: 40 blocks of ice (25 L of water), in 40 timelapses of four hours, are strung into some 36,000 photos of stop-motion animation. Stop motion might just rest on its visual spectacle, but in the hands of director Christophe Thockler, the results are positively cinematic, too, and oddly poignant. With sound on mute, that would be wonderful to watch, but instead, you get to enjoy the music of trumpet player/technologist Ben Neill and vocalist Mimi Goese …
