#Additivism - masterclass with Daniel Rourke



Masterclass with Daniel Rourke

In 2015 Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke released The 3D Additivist Manifesto, a call to push the 3D printer to its absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. Projects responding to that call were later published in The 3D Additivist Cookbook.

In the framework of the Shiv Integer exhibition, iMAL invites Daniel for a lecture on the Manifesto+Cookbook, and for a two-days additivist masterclass. 

25 & 26 May 2017 | 10:00 - 18:00
Location: iMAL, Quai des Charbonnages Koolmijnenkaai, 30, 1080 Brussels
Participation fee: 40€
Registration is mandatory: http://imal.org/additivism/masterclass/register

For the masterclass/workshop, artists, designers, creators and thinkers are called to reflect on the potential of the 3D printer as a tool of play, critical expression, and community building. Over two days masterclass participants will reflect on digital forms of appropriation, in homage to the work of Shiv Integer (currently on show at iMAL). How can online 3D object repositories, free desktop software, and ‘weird’ thinking be used to inspire new forms of action and intervention? What is the potential of humour in forging ‘radical’ works in art and design?

After considering the metaphorical and practical implications of additive processes, and exploring the revolutionary spaces opened up by ‘Art Activism’, workshop participants will devise playful and conceptual 3D printable designs that have radical implications. We will reconsider activism as a form of ‘change’ and question the notion of ‘problem solving’ using dystopia, horror, and weirding as methodologies.
 

IN PREPARATION FOR THE WORKSHOP

Participants are asked to spend some time with The 3D Additivist Cookbook before they arrive. Come ready to talk about at least one project, text or recipe from the Cookbook which inspires you in relation to your own work and practice.
