3D Systems Art Challenge

November 14th, 2014

3D Systems Art Challenge

Many of us are devoted art-appreciators and we all have something to say about art in the 21st century. That, of course, doesn't always mean we know what we're saying. History proves that the collective opinion on art is not so reliable, to say the least. It's enough to look at a few examples: Vincent van Gogh, Franz Schubert, Edgar Allan Poe, Johannes Vermeer - all of these cultural giants died unrecognized and coinless. But their art is priceless today. Why all the babble? Well, there are quite a few of these art-appreciators out there who publicly express their doubts about 3D printing's role in the art world. Care to hear what we think? We're positive 3D printing is a real magician's hat - you can produce any object out of nothing... And that can be a curse or a blessing.
