Developed in collaboration with UCD engineer James Carron, a suite of 3d printers were repurposed to wrap rather than make objects. The objects & fragments that each printer was re-coded to wrap were collected from the Dot Binding sewing factory. Installed in the Robert Emmet Community Development Project from 21st Sept - 25th Sept, these objects are wrapped for eight hours a day using the left-over threads from the factory, for one work week. The objects will form a permanent archive of industrial objects in the community centre reception area.
James Carron… is a UCD Engineering Student. He is currently on a Summer Scholarship with UCD Innovation Academy where he works on Personal Projects and with Artists and Researchers on how to integrate technologies into their work.
