According to 3ders.org, Google Arts and Culture is an online platform that gives people access to some of the world’s greatest pieces of art. This online platform finds creative ways to bring historical art into our modern and it seems technological society has been one of the historical arts and culture. When we talk about technology, it is definitely related to 3D printing because that is one of the latest technologies nowadays. In short, 3D printing may become part of Google Arts and Culture projects.
Google Arts and Culture just launched a series of 10 3D printed ceramic vases that is exhibited at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) museum. That museum is in Mumbai, India. All of these 3D printed vases are released for a reason which is to be part of the platform’s wider “Future Relics” project. It aims to blend age-old crafting methods with modern technologies.
There was an interesting small talk when the museum visitors answered about contemporary object they would like archaeologists 1,000 years from now to find. The answers subsequently become the Google Arts and Culture’s future relic keywords. Each of the 10 3D printed vases is adorned with one of those keywords. Following is the words that are obtained: mobile, car, computer, books, can, utensils, spectacles, plastic, gold, and soil.
Tess just wrote that 3D printed vases were designed using CAD software and were subsequently 3D printed using a custom ceramic additive manufacturing process. After processing, which consisted of a glaze, was done by ceramic artist Padma Shri Brahmdeo Ram Pandit. Pandit said that the 3D printed vases definitely pushing the ability of artistic creation, where cutting-edge future technology is married perfectly with traditional process and the contemporary glazing style.
Now, Google Arts and Culture has already collaborated with over 50 cultural institutions in the country to set digital exhibits. CSMVS, the Indian museum that has 3D printed vases, is one of the partnerships. It also seems to mark one of Google Arts and Culture’s many collaborations.
