Fused filament fabrication involves a specific aesthetic related to the process by which slicing software layers increments of lines to produce an object. In opposition to the traditional approach of focusing on high-resolution, and methods for trying to negate the layered aesthetic all together through post-processing, can we look at this essential aesthetic from an artistic perspective as drawing? Drawing, with the potential for exploring the visual residue of the process as a creative possibility. My presentation will cover the means by which I look at 3d printing through a veil of creating artworks for the contemporary art world that oscillate between sculpture and drawing with the intent of accepting the digital residue as part of the creative process where software, code, and machine play an integral part of making the art.
