If you find yourself passing through midtown Manhattan and have a little spare time on your hands, I recommend a detour over to the Museum of Arts and Design.
Their latest exhibition, Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital, features works conceived or built using digital techniques. There’s a heavy emphasis on geek-friendly tools like 3D printing, CNC milling, and even “digital knitting.”
Many of the resulting works sport intricate constructions too challenging or cost-prohibitive for traditional manufacturing. Others involve playful reinterpretations of existing works enabled by 3D scanning and editing.
The museum is camera-friendly, and operates a set of open studios on the upper floors, where you can visit with artists and discuss their work.
