Textscapes are 3D printed documents to reemphasis printing in modern technological world.
May 17 – July 12, 2019
Textscapes are 3D printed documents to reemphasis printing in modern technological world. Printing technology was first created in ancient China to reproduce text using woodblocks, however today’s definition had been widely adopted in 3D printing, an additive process more often to create objects instead of duplicate text. Textscape generates letter-sized 3D documents to visually profile the subject matters of the texts, such as cities, landscapes or figures. These documents make reading process interactive for general audience or blind people, as knowledge as well as art. This series of work has variations of braille, language characters, calligraphies and number systems to bridge the contents and its visuality in architecture, landscape, portraits and abstract matters.

This zany homage to movie musicals of the 1930s is a tap-dancing delight. When aspiring Broadway chorus girl Ruby meets songwriting sailor Dick– love sets sail. This campy spoof is a perfect night out for the family.
Appropriate for all ages.
