Designers in Residence Meetup at MAD this Friday January 24th

Posted by in meetup

It’s snowy outside, so what better way to spend an evening than talking 3D printing with artists at the Museum of Arts and Design?

Shapeways is managing an interactive space at MAD in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibition Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital. The show investigates the many ways technology has enabled artists and designers to create in the 20th century—including of course, 3D printing.

Come and join Sophie Kahn, Lucas Goossens, and the Laser Girls as they talk about how they use 3D printing to make innovative fine art, modern jewelry, and extreme nails. The talks will start shortly after 6:30pm on the second floor and there will be time for questions.

Take your time to check out the incredible exhibition, and come play in the Shapeways interactive space afterwards. We’ll be running our army of Formlabs 3D printers and we will be 3D scanning people so you can get your very own “3D selfie”!

Head over to meetup.com to RSVP and for more details. And if you can’t join us on Friday, the exhibition runs through June 2014.

Hope to see you there!
