Artists pushing boundaries of form and content
Live/Work: An Alternative Showcase, 2013
Smith|Allen, the sculptor/architect team of Stephanie Smith and Bryan Allen, are pushing boundaries of new media with their large-scale 3D printed sculptures and installation. Most recently creating one of the largest works in the medium, Smith|Allen’s site-specific installation for their Project 387 Residency in Gualala, California, this past August, responded to the hybrid landscape of the modern forest with a 10x10x8-foot sculpture composed entirely of translucent white 3D printed plant based bio-plastic. Using the same technologies and relationships to natural phenomena, Smith|Allen creates jewelry and homewares that reflect their commitment to challenging the traditional conception and use of consumer grade 3D printing to the use of design, art, and architecture.
