Dutch Artist Martijn Hage, who works with digital techniques and multi-dimensions, has created the unique project “Hortus Filamentus” by combining 2D with 3D.
His project contains nine panels each 50 x 50 cm which feature 2.5D micro-worlds created with the help of 3D printing technology.
“The art project took me three months of preparation. It started with the base design of the nine magical 3D micro-worlds panels”, explains Hage. “I developed several generative scripts to shape my fractal based worlds and they where printed in 2D on dibont aluminium material as the end result. Until now, this was my typical method, but then 3D printing was brought in to literally add a new dimension to this project. It became a real challenge to learn all the ins and outs of this technique in such a short time.”
The 3D elements were printed on an Ultimaker using Innofil3D’s filament. Martijn will clone his artwork in a limited edition.
