Giant Zoetrope, a 3d printed kinetic sculpture 2018. This artwork is by far the biggest and most complex piece I have done. It is displayed at the Singapore Science Centre where it attracts a hundreds of viewers each week.
The elaborate kintetic artwork is nearly 2 meters tall and consists of 605 individual objects, each one hand painted in great detail. It took me (Sebastian Burdon) over 3 months to make all the 3d modeling, sculpting and animation. During the process I developed a number of 3d production scripts which automated certain areas of production.
To 3d print itself too over t 4.3 weeks. The print material is Nylon, this is super strong gives very accurate prints starting with a box of nylon dust that a laser is fired into to fuse together.
Talented painters put 1220 hours of work to make it happen.
The artwork took 960 hours to assemble.
Size is 1300 x 1300 x 1945mm
Weight Aprox 200kg
