Feminist Reproduction 3D Printing Workshop

Since Eyebeam’s founding 16 years ago, 2013 marks the very first year that its roster of Fellows and Residents includes more women than men. The Very First Year is a series of public events and installations in consideration of this fact, organized by 2013 fellow Laurel Ptak and inspired by her ongoing research at Eyebeam into cyberfeminist art practices since the 1990s.

 The Very First Year will explore contemporary aspects of gender, feminism, technology and art from numerous angles. A range of activities and installations will take place at Eyebeam, including public events on:

Cicatrix, Charred Bodies: Pain and Redemption in Virtual and Real Worlds opens at the Eyebeam Window Gallery on November 29th. "Cicatrix" refers to scar tissue, and for his installation Eyebeam Resident Alan Sondheim juxtaposes early radio equipment with contemporary models of virtual avatars to meditate on virtuality as it relates to distortion, pain, and death. In a reflection on the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism, Alan comments how in Second Life pain physically cannot occur, but therefore it also cannot be stopped. The avatars he creates, both through digital texture mapping and 3D printing, capture distorted bodies in moments of unnatural pain. The elements of distortion in Alan's work are aural, too: several antique crystal radio sets will be amplified so they can be heard through the glass in the Window Gallery. Cicatrix, Charred Bodies will be on view in the window gallery until December 11th.

Ruins (1), detail from an installation of tumors - printed on eyebeam's Dimension 3D printer

For most of the 200,000 women in the United States diagnosed with breast cancer each year, medical imaging is the entry point into the disease. Yet, rarely does a woman get to see her M.R.I. or get a sense of the shape or physicality of the malignancy inside her. Research suggests that tumor visualization can be an important aspect of dealing with the aftermath of cancer, with positive psychological and possibly physiological effects on patients.

Unfold Fab announced the first successful printing of a ceramic vessel by a 3D printer. Interestingly, one of the biggest challenges seems to be eliminating the bubbles in the clay. However, what I want to know is, how to fire the resulting pieces?
