Christophe Guberan + MIT Self-Assembly Lab

Liquid to Air: Pneumatic Objects

Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present Liquid to Air: Pneumatic Objects, an exhibition of 3D-printed inflatable works by the Self-Assembly Lab, MIT and Swiss designer Christophe Guberan. Using Rapid Liquid Printing, a new process they developed, the Self-Assembly lab has created a way to craft large, customized, dynamic products with complex shapes, internal chambers, and intricate surfaces. This printing process enables the individualized production of large-scale objects in a matter of minutes, ranging in scale from a vase to a sofa.

With Rapid Liquid Printing, manufacturing is reimagined as an artistic experience unlimited by scale or gravity—each pneumatic form is “drawn” by a robot in a tank of gel suspension and inflated to take on its intended shape. The MIT Self-Assembly Lab Team includes Björn Sparrman, Schendy Kernizan, Jared Laucks, and Skylar Tibbits. They have been collaborating with Christophe Guberan since 2014.
