In our fast evolving manufacturing world, as more things are designed and created digitally, how do we bridge the gap between images we see on screen and how these are physically reproduced? How convincing are these? As more images are digitally reproduced and printed, standardised methods for commercial printing are becoming faster, cheaper, bigger and bolder, but we could suggest that quantity has been achieved at the cost of quality, and ubiquity at the cost of diversity. This presentation will explore the field of 2.5D printing, its uses and applications to explore a new materiality of surface and new tactile engagement.
