BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, England––For Michael Eden‘s ambitious exhibition last year (May 25 – October 21, 2018) Michael Eden: Form & Transform, the artist created new pieces responding to objects from Waddesdon’s collection, and displayed them throughout the Coach House Gallery at the Stables in a theatrical setting, Waddesdon writes.
Journal 18 describes the Renaissance style Loire Valley château, built in the 1870s and 1880s, as overflowing with beautiful and sometimes bizarre objects.
Eden created the specially commissioned works by using 3D scans of the historic objects, then 3D-printed re-imgained objects for today, the Manor adds.
These unique pieces are the result of technical innovation combined with extraordinary levels of skill using revolutionary tools and pushing materials and digital technology to their extremes. He describes how he has appropriated digital manufacturing processes: ‘Three-dimensional printing has given me the freedom to create works of art impossible with the wheel and clay’.
