Reverse 3D printer

Invented book making technique. Reverse 3D printing is a laborious and pointless process whereby an object is sliced into paper thin slices and prints are made of each cross section. The object is then ‘reassembled’ by stacking the prints in the correct order, rendering it as a 3d ink model trapped within the pages. The process was demonstrated over a week long performance titled C’est Toujours Une Pipe as part of CAC Gallery’s Work Programme residency.
