Inside Out is an international touring exhibition featuring forty-six miniature sculptures produced in resin using 3D printing technologies. Developments in virtual computer visualisation and integrated digital technologies are giving contemporary makers new insight and opportunities to create objects and forms which were previously impossible to produce or difficult to envisage. The exhibition is the result of collaboration between the Art Technology Coalition, the University of Technology Sydney and RMIT University in Australia along with De Montfort University, Manchester Metropolitan University and University College Falmouth incorporating Dartington College of Arts in the United Kingdom. The work Lace explores new ways of interpreting lace as an open work structure through the technology of rapid prototyping. In this instance, rapid prototyping enables the materiality of a piece of lace to be folded and rolled, allowing the lace to stand as a 3 dimensional object, to be viewed both from the inside and out. While embracing the physicality of new material, the piece references traditional techniques and explores interconnections between memory, pattern and technology. Encoded in the process is the tradition of a textile history that has continually responded to creative technologies that have evolve within each age. Inside Out was exhibited 5 June-25 July 2010 at Object gallery, the Australian Centre for Craft and Design and toured internationally. The exhibition drew attention due to its exploration of advanced technologies applied to design outcomes.
