3D printed Acoustic Objects: Currents International New Media Festival

Stephen BARRASS (Designer)

    Research output: Non-textual formDesign


    This is a series of 3D printed bells where each bell has been shaped by the sound of the previous bell in the series. This recursive process consists of CAD modelling a bell, printing it in stainless steel, then ringing it and recording the sound. The frequency spectrum of the audio recording is then used to modulate the shape mesh of the 3D CAD model of the next bell in the series. Does the series vary forever, or lead to a bell that is the shape of its own sound?

    Currents brings together the work of established, unrecognized and emerging New Media artists, from New Mexico, the US and the world, for events showcasing interactive and fine art video installations, multimedia performances, single channel video, animation, digital dome programs, experimental documentary,web based/app art forms, architectural mapping, the oculus rift, robotics and 3D printing.
