The current piece in progress

Van-Gogh-Limitations-Phil-Hansen-Crowdsourcing-Art-Project

A previously created text piece

Many of us have limitations, both self-made as well as ones that we were born with, that sometimes hold us back. And then there are those of us, who despite the greatest difficulties, try to reach our full potential.

Multimedia artist Phil Hansen (previously here, here and here) wants to know about your past limitations. Hansen is looking for people to call him on 651-321-4996, and share their stories.  He will then write the collective stories onto a 9ft. x 13 ft. canvas, and create a pointillist piece that is made entirely of text. You can can watch and read as each story is being written onto the canvas via the live feed on his site.

Hansen was able to start a successful Kickstarter project to fund the capture of this shared experience and to make it into a short documentary. He recently gave an inspiring TED talk in which he talks about facing a career threatening personal limitation, which he was able to embrace and overcome.

Share your story by calling or submitting it online at Phil Hansen’s site.

3D_Printed_Mobile_Quternary_Tree_Level6_by_Marco_Mahler_and_Henry_Segerman_1

Marco Mahler (previously), an artist and musician based in Portland, Oregon, has released a new collection of kinetic sculptures on his site, which were created in a collaborative effort with Henry Segerman, a research fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne. Mahler claims that these are the first fully 3D printed mobile sculptures in the world.

Made out of laser sintered nylon plastic – one of the most popular materials used for 3D printing – the intricately designed mobiles come out of the printers in a completely assembled state, and are heatproof up to 80 °C / 176 °F.

More about the making process:

The balance points for these mobiles were calculated to 1/1000th of a millimeter (1/25360th of an inch). The models for some of these mobiles were drawn up “by hand”, others were created utilizing scripts that we wrote. Some of the mobiles, like Mobile 4.2, are designed with a very small increase or decrease in thickness from one part to the next, something that is not possible to do with conventional handmade mobiles. Utilizing scripts also allows for designs that would be very time consuming to make by hand, such as the Quaternary Tree (Level 6), which has 1365 pieces.

You can buy these kinetic sculptures at their Shapeways online store, for prices ranging from $10 to $600.

Here are a few more images of the sculptures.
