Breed 1.2 #e234, collection Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam
Breed 1.2 models produced in 2007 with the PrintingMetal technique. This rapid manufacturing technique creates 3-dimensional objects by printing stainless steel powder with a binder. In an oven the objects are heatened until the binder is vapourised and the metal powder is sintered. After this, the porous objects are infiltrated with liquid bronze. The objects differ in size, approximately 80 x 80 x 80 mm.The production of Breed 1.2 was made possible by The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
