Daniel Rourke presents his ongoing collaboration with Morehshin Allahyari: The 3D Additivist Manifesto and forthcoming Cookbook. A call to push 3D printing and additive technologies to their absolute limits and beyond, into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. Drawing metaphoric connections between Additive manufacturing and Geological processes, Daniel will talk about plastic, deep time and the incidental production of 'pseudomorphs' – destined to outlast the humans that create them.
'The fate of ‘man’ in the Anthropocene is not that he will be erased, but that he will be made immortal, as a trace preserved forever in the rock.' (Bronislaw Szerszynski, The End of the End of Nature: The Anthropocene and the Fate of the Human, 2012)
This event is part of Point Line Time, a drawing research project led by artist and writer Tamarin Norwood as part of her twelve-month residency at Spike Island, Bristol. Throughout her residency, Norwood is working with a network of researchers and practitioners including an animator, a 3D print engineer, a choreographer and a sign language translator to explore the acts of drawing and writing in relation to time and three-dimensional space. She hosts a series of public conversations, presentations and live experiments as she develops a new body of work.
