As the sampler was to hip-hop so the 3D printer is to sculpture and designed objects. Open source 3D printing has paved the way for a revolution in making things. Just as blogs disrupted publishing, and smart phones changed communications so 3D printing, scanning and modeling will transform the world of objects and the services that surround them. One area where this change is being felt is in publishing as 3D printable objects are shared online by professionals and enthusiasts alike.
The product of this burgeoning field is a democratization of tools, parts and assemblies. Within this context of free cultural products I chose to publish Orihon the world's first entirely 3D printable book. The subject matter for Orihon is derived from 3D scans made of sculptures and reliefs, found at the Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural in New York and The Field Museum in Chicago.
Orihon features work by the following artists and designers: Aminimal Studio, Jason Bakutis + Erol Gunduz, Kacie Hultgren (Pretty Small Things), Tony Buser and Tom Burtonwood. Orihon has been featured on Boing Boing, Tech Crunch, The Huffington Post, PSFK and the Paris Review.
