just discovered this today although the exhibition was already 2011. Still unbelievable beautiful images!

 

the new media artist's first solo exhibition includes colour soaked renditions of flower specimens alongside imaginative botanical diagrams, conflating the worlds of history, engineering, science, art, and digital design.

Skylar Tibbits: The emergence of "4D printing" | Video on TED.com

TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits talks about 4D printing, a technique to produce whatever parts by 3D printing that can transform its shape afterwards by themselves. The aim is to get sort of smart materials that are more than e.g. shape memory alloys. These materials should in future be able to fulfill certain tasks and act independently just like autonomous robots. Sounds interesting, am curious where this leads to!
