Vans Creates 3D-Printed Cut Outs Of Skateboarders’ Rides
Pop-up gallery houses the installation that mapped riders moves and made them into three-dimensional objects.
Vans Italy alongside AW Lab have launched a temporary gallery in Milan titled Action Gallery revealing their latest project Skate Art Machine.
Aimed at combining both sport and art, the installation was created by using 3D-printed shapes of skater’s movements. A mini-ramp digitally traced each skateboarder’s moves and sent the forms and shapes to a 3D printer to cut out, creating unique shapes for each participant. The forms were synchronized with the music being played transforming the experience into a multi-sensory extravaganza.
