The London based designer William Stanley took the lightweight design based on bone structures quite literally with his work on the art project “Skele-structure”.
This pigeon like bird/machine is truly a pice of modern art. William combined parts of a bird’s skeleton with mechanical structures like a crane and a few more structures that I can´t define. This two headed bird was printed on an SLS 3D printer and symbolises the manmade structures that mimic the animal kingdom.
Half Pigeon skeleton, half structural parts. Standing perched like a prehistoric natural history exhibit, Skele-structure is a merging of the natural and the artificial. Printed with an SLS 3D printer Skele-structure explores the relationship between light weight bird skeletons and the attempt by man made structures to mimic the lightweight qualities of structures in the animal kingdom.
