Selma Lepart - R.E.D - 2015
On June 1, 2017, the Centre Georges Pompidou, in Paris, is organizing a study day around 3D impression. It is part of EnsadLab’s “Responsive Matter” research project – the laboratory of the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs.
This day is organized by Samuel Bianchini, Dominique Peysson et Emanuele Quinz in dialogue with Marie-Ange Brayer, curator of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
3D printing technology refreshes the idea of an ideal form ordering matter: it should only make sense because it is informed and has to be forgotten. But what about today’s new active, reactive and adaptive materials? How can 3D printing be 4D printing? In art, design and architecture, in close dialogue with the sciences, how can we conceive and implement such materials for creations endowed with sensibility, in the literal and figurative sense?
