Neri Oxman and the Masking of Björk

Neri Oxman projects an intrusion into the consciousness of design. With the use of 3D printing technology, her visionary expeditions into the realms of fashion are nothing less than breathtaking. Complementing her call of otherworldly sirens has been the voice of Icelandic artist Björk.

According to Katie Armstrong writing for 3Dprintingindustry.com, Björk will be adorned in 3D printed attire for her upcoming digital shows BJÖRK DIGITAL an event series running from June 29 to July 18, 2016. The pioneering event marks a world first, as the first-ever event to be broadcast live via 360-degree virtual reality streaming as well as a live event in Australia. Inspired by Björk’s most recent album, Vulnicura, Neri Oxman and her team Mediated Matter Group used 3D scans of Björk’s face to create digital interpretations of her bone and tissue structure, with the customized design brought to life with Stratasys’ unique full-color, multi-material 3D printing technology.
