A new logo for the IUOMA made with the 3D pen on April 29th 2016 by Ruud Janssen
On April 24th 2016 I made this new IUOMA logo with a 3D pen using PLA plastics (White, grey, black and brown). An experiment to see if you can construct any logo you want and have the object instantly in your hands. On the backside of the object you can see the structure created with the white PLA which was the basis for the logo. I signed it with IUOMA.. Read More
Two variations of a new logo made with the 3D pen. Using Black, White and Orange PLA plastics to make this concept. You can see front and backside.
In 2 weeks I will be doing two workshops on the use of the 3D pen for two groups of teachers at a college. They will be guided into the possibilities of using the new tool in their education, but it could also be fun. I made the letter A with black PLA plastic, and the golden cage was made lateron as a cube surrounding the letter A. I used.. Read More
Since next month I will be doing a workshop with 3D pens for teachers, I am testing the possibilities first with standard objects. Going real D takes more time, but I will do that in the coming weeks for sure. Writing letters will be a first assignment for the students….. I will explain them a bit of my work inside the Mail-Art network as well……
After making the letter as objects, I made a 2-coloured cup with the 3D pen. It holds now the letters ART. Installation by Ruud Janssen on February 8th 2016,
In 2 months I will be doing two workshops for teachers that work at a college. I will sow them the ways to use a 3D pen and also let them think on how to use it with their students. For the occasion I will have access to lots of 3D pens, so it will be interesting to see how that goes. For my art I am testing a few.. Read More
A letter to Richard C (Canard). Writing letters with a 3D Pen takes time and with such a 3D Pen you actually create an object that you can send. So that way, it is a performance or a score to write a letter with a 3D pen. Sent a sample to the USA in an envelope, and here is how that looks like.
In 2014 the first attempt to make the IUOMA-logo with a 3D pen. I plan to produce more, but still am looking for the time to do so.Making these kind of objects is time absorbing since every line is made by hand.
Experimenting with the 3D pen resulted in an interesting collection of objects. I also like to call it ‘writing letters’ because the objects are letters or even envelopes. To document the findings I also wrote two articles that are formally published. have a look at them to read: https://www.academia.edu/10113497/The_influence_of_the_3D_pen_in_the_Art_World_-_Part_1 https://www.academia.edu/10113532/The_influence_of_the_3D_pen_in_the_art_World_-_Part_2 These are .PDF files, so you can print or save them if you like.
