Engadget is reporting on a group of Dutch 3d animators that literally printed out every frame of a short film in with a 3d printer and made it into an exhibit.
From the site:
Why 3D print a computer animation? ‘Art’ is a good enough reason for us, and that’s exactly what drove Dutch artists to put a hundred frames into a single mind-bending installation. Using an Ultimaker 2 3D printer and liberal amounts of glue and string, artists Job, Joris and Marieke squeezed all the cells from a short animation (below) into a single mise-en-scene. At a glance, you can see the fate of the teal-hued hero as he vaults off a cup and into a vase, with each detail (including a bouncing ball and shattered cup) faithfully reproduced in PVC. If you want to feel like you’re inside a computer where time has lost all meaning, it’ll be exhibited at Amersfoort’s Kunsthal museum on March 29th.
