Make plans to join us at 7 pm on Tuesday, February 4, when the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum Very Interesting Lecture Series offers its second program: Digital Fabrication & 3D Art.
Digital fabrication techniques, often referred to as “3D prototyping” or “3D printing” are quickly becoming affordable at a consumer level and frequently featured in today’s news headlines. But what exactly is 3D printing? See some real life examples of mathematical works created using these processes by self-taught local artist Phil Webster.
Webster’s work explores the intersections of mathematical patterns and shapes, natural forms, ancient design traditions and sacred geometry. He creates his art using a variety of techniques that include laser cutting wood, paper, acrylic; 3D printing in plastic and metal; and giclee prints on paper, canvas and metal.
Joseph Method of the Southern Berkshire Technology Group will introduce the topic.
This program is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, with over 75 years of service to Pittsfield’s Public Library.
