Shiv Integer: 3D Prints as Components for a Robot
An exhibition by Julien Deswaef and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez. Opening April 19. Up to May 28, 2017. At Imal.
Every day, Shiv Integer randomly selects 3D printable objects available on a website, assembles them into sculptures and posts them back online.
Shiv Integer’s particularity? It’s actually an automatic software robot – a bot – created by Julien Deswaef and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez. Is it art or spam? The 3D printing community remains divided on the question.
For this first Shiv Integer exhibition, the artists will show a selection of the bot’s sculptures materialised through 3D printing, as well as a visualisation of the online debates it fostered.
