building fantastic

tripode_cover_blogIts taken me a while to “unpack” the totality of this current exhibition at London’s John Soane museum but now that I get it its taking everything for me not to pack my bags to get to see it. Diverse Maniere: Piranesi, Fantasy and Excess is an exhibition that weaves the drawings of Piranesi, the interior of John Soane and the technical circus that is  of 3-D printing all into one. For me, it’s a triumph, see a student project that I worked on where 18th century drawings spurred the imagination and became objects from the 3-d printing activity. This exhibition also really speaks to history as a lens for examining very current cultural conditions.
