Shuttle R.I.P.

Shuttle R.I.P. by MicahGanske Jan 29, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

This is a sculpture from my recent solo show, "Tomorrow Land"! You can read all about the meaning of the work here: rhgallery.com/site/exhibitions/tomorrowland/tomorrowland_pressrelease.pdf

This sculpture commemorates the end of the shuttle program. The shuttle silhouette is cut out of a cemetery. Pour one out for this retired work-horse!

It's art so it's not "for" anything other than to impress your friends with your well-developed cultural palette.

By the way, we printed the "muffin top" version of this piece (just the top chunk) at the Affordable Art Fair in LA on a Replicator and audiences had a great time watching the cemetery scene rising quickly up from the build platform.
This series of pieces were huge hits on the art circuit this year -- and featured on WSJ blog and elsewhere. Here's what I grabbed from the MakerBot blog:

Instructions

Print at the highest resolution your printer can muster! I printed this for my show at .22mm.

I recommend the Natural ABS color because it looks the most high-end.
