According to Behnaz Farahi,” he is an architect and designer have created a 3D printed outfit that can recognize a gaze of a person looking at the outfit and can respond to the gaze.  This work was created as part of the Pier 9, Artist in Residence Program of Autodesk. The 3D printed wearable uses a camera to detect the gaze of a person and changes its shape in response.

The Pier 9 Artists in Residence program gives artists an opportunity to work at digital fabrication workshops of Autodesk.  Artists receive funding and budget for supplies and publish their work.¨

According to John Edmark, “He is an inventor and designer who teaches at Stanford University has designed 3D printed sculptures called blooms that animate when spun and lit by a strobe light. These sculptures can be used to create fascinating animations using a video camera with a fast shutter speed. The 3D printed sculpture is rotated at a particular speed synchronized with the shutter speed of the video camera that captures a picture every time the object turns by a particular angle.  As a result, fascinating animations are created as shown in the videos below. These designs are available for printing from Shapeways. A turntable and a strobe light are needed to animate a bloom. Generating an animation using a bloom is similar to Zoetrope. The number of spirals on each sculpture is always Fibonacci numbers.  Therefore these are also called Fibonacci Zoetropes.¨
