In February during my one-person show devoted to my 3D-printed sculptures, I heard many interesting comments and questions.
One thing I was asked repeatedly is whether I’d ever put lights into a 3D printed sculpture.
This undoubtedly grew out of them seeing the luminous translucent filaments I’ve used, including ice blue (for the sculpture Easy In), red (several sculptures, including Redhead and Love and Marriage), purple (Twin Peaks and Love and Marriage) and – my favorite – yellow (SunScraper, right). The yellow just really lights up!
BTW, I’ve tried green “translucent” filament, too, which wasn’t really translucent and was, honestly, just pretty ugly.
The subject came up so often, in fact, that, of course, my mind got going ….
