Making Art 4.0 is an idea by ScanAndMake (scanandmake.com), a young and innovative startup based in Liverpool, UK. ScanAndMake aims to promote the use of computer controlled technologies like 3D Printing, CNC Milling, Laser cutting and others to a wider audience, enabling them to emerge from the techie bubble where they are now trapped.
The idea behind the contest and the exhibition is to stimulate the creativity of the international art community and to push the usage of the above mentioned techniques.
The city of Liverpool, where the ScanAndMake Startup is based, is a flamboyant city rich in cultural and artistic activities, famous for its musical scene and for its museums and cultural institutions (like Tate, or the world famous Liverpool Biennial). All the art displayed has got a peculiarity: Reproducibility. After the exhibition, instructions will be available to make it possible to reproduce the piece.
ScanAndMake’s mission is to create a new front in the Art Market, by applying the same revolution that happened to the distribution of music and books (with the arrival of digital distribution platforms) to the art world.
