ART.ZIP: Tell me a little about yourself.
MP: I have a background in IT and networking, after coming across the techniques in 3D printing 2 years ago I have decided to start this studio with my brother.
MP: 我的專業背景是IT信息技術和網絡工程,兩年前接觸了3D技術後 我和哥哥決定開自己的工作室。
ART.ZIP: Why did you choose this method to start a studio?
MP: First of all, it’s cool. Like a photographic studio but the end result is a small 3D figure. We explored many ways we could work with the printer, at first I scanned everything I could and out of curiosity, I made a scan of my brother. From there I thought this would be a good way we can relate 3D printing to commercial use. After research we decided to put this into business.
MP: 首先,我覺得3D技術真的很酷。我們工作室看起來像攝影工作室一 樣,但是我們最終的成品是一個小小的3D人像模型。我們用打印機進 行各項實驗,最初我會掃瞄所有我能找到的東西,當這種初始的好奇慢 慢失去之後,我把我哥哥掃瞄了一次,從而發現這是一個很好地把3D打 印結合商業用途的方式。在做了一些基本調查以後我們就正式開業了。
ART.ZIP: How do you think 3D printing in relations to Photography?
MP: Both are recreating visual images. Like when photography first came out, it was difficult for domestic access, but people are starting to relate it to themselves. A client came in and asked me to print a replacement leg for her animal; it’s not yet possible at my studio. They don’t quite understand it yet, but are starting to become willing to make it relevant to their lives.
MP: 兩者都是視覺圖像的重現。像攝影剛誕生的時候,很難普及到家用,但人們會開始把它與自身聯繫起來。一位客人曾經讓我為他的寵物打印義肢;雖然 在我工作室還不能實現。儘管顧客還不太明白3D打印技術,但是他們已經願意把它融 入到自身生活當中去。
ART.ZIP: Do you think it will replace Photography?
MP: My mother replaced all the family photographs on the shelf with family figures! But I don’t think it will replace photography in the way that photography will go extinct, only it’s just a different approach to documenting image.
MP: 我媽媽把家裡的家庭合照都換成家庭人像模型了!但是我並不認為3D打印技術會取 代攝影並使之消逝,它只是另一種方法來記錄影像而已。
ART.ZIP: Where do you think the future of 3D printing will be?
MP: The possibilities are infinite, NASA is looking to print food, the medics are already printing body parts; therefore I think 3D prints will affect all of us from every aspect. I have had an artist client asking me to scan and copy his sculpture, so that he will keep the scanned file himself for future reference, I guess this will affect the way art pieces will be sold as well.
MP: 它的可能性是無限的,NASA開始考慮用它來打印食物,醫生已經用它來打印身體的 某些部分,因此我認為3D打印會從各種方面影響人類社會。我有一位客戶是藝術家,他 就讓我掃瞄和複製他的雕塑,這樣他就可以保存掃瞄件以便日後備查,我想這會影響藝 術品被消費的方式吧。
