3D Printed Human Ash

No, Shapeways is not introducing a new material (today) but I just wanted to point you in the direction of a new exhibition by dutch design studio wieke somers entitled ‘consumer or conserve’ using 3D printed human ash. Better than an urn on the mantle piece? Would you think twice about throwing away a consumer product knowing it was constructed from human ash? Or is this just totally weird?

‘birds and toaster’ made from the ashes of anne lindeboom (1920 – 1984)

wieki somers’ ‘consume or conserve’ is part of the ‘in progress’ exhibition held at
grand-hornu images in Belgium until september 12th, 2010.
