Back in February i.materialise opened a specific design challenge focused on the distinctive work of Andy Warhol as part of a collaboration with SME, the organisers of the RAPID event. The result will be an exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum on the opening night of RAPID in Pittsburgh in June — a special 3D printed installation, curated by renowned gallery owner Murray Moss, that combines Pop art with 3D printing.
After much deliberation, the five finalists have been announced and here they are for your delectation:
