Objet 3D Printed 'Fragments in Time' – Next stop, The London Pride Festival of Art and Design

Objet 3D Printed 'Fragments in Time' – Next stop, The London Pride Festival of Art and Design Daniel Hilldrup exhibits 'Flux' and 'Aquiform in Rest' as part of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations

Rehovot, Israel – March 29, 2012 – Hot on the heels of its exhibition debut in Munich, Daniel Hilldrup’s 3D printed ‘Fragments in Time’ series will go on display again today, this time at The London Pride Festival of Art and Design in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Flux and Aquiform in Rest, the first pieces representing the ‘Fragments in Time’ concept, were printed by Objet ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, using its multi-material Connex technology. 

3D printed by Objet, 'Aquiform in Rest' captures the motion of agitated water within a constrained volume Taking place over four days, the festival showcases six decades of art and design in London, with Hilldrup’s work representing ‘Future Design’ in an exhibition by artists from London Metropolitan University. Using cutting-edge 3D printing technology, Flux and Aquiform in Rest were produced using Objet Connex technology, which has the unique capability of printing multiple materials and properties into the same part, in a single print run, allowing Hilldrup to capture what he describes as “contemporary fossils.” 
“The Future Design exhibition and its part in the larger exploration of 60 years of work is an apt platform for these contemporary fossils,” says Hilldrup. “In the ‘Fragments in Time’ series I have experimented with simulations of movement and the transition of energies and materials from one form to another; and frozen the moment. I’m often influenced and motivated by technology. These particular pieces were inspired by Objet multi-material printing and the ability to simply print the pieces off without any assembly, without using traditional casting methods.” 
The 'Flux' candelabra was 3D printed using the unique Objet multi-material Connex technology Hilldrup describes Flux as “a statement on the transference of energy and its transition and total transformation from one physical state and form into another.” The piece depicts black candle wax melting into the liquid base of a candelabra, captured, like a fossil, at a specific moment in time. Objet 3D printed the piece using the Objet black rubber-like material (Objet TangoBlackPlus) and the Objet clear transparent, rigid material (Objet VeroClear), to realize the effect of wax melting into liquid. The removable candle holders were printed separately in Objet rigid opaque black material (Objet VeroBlack). 
'Aquiform in Rest' is a free standing sink basin and sculptural form. As its name suggests, it is of a sample in time capturing a chosen state where the motion of water constrained within a volume is revealed. 3D printed by Objet in its clear transparent material, it has been finished with a two-pack polyurethane paint.
