Quiet humming and screeching fills the upstairs lobby of EMMA, Espoo Museum Of Modern Art, before the audience walks through the doors and up the stairs. The sound comes from the two 3D printers that are working on small pre-designed models, demonstrating 3D printing to the visitors of the museum.
Aalto FabLab of Aalto Media Factory sent over the 3D printers as well as their experts Charlie Banthorpe and Ali Neissi to bring 3D printing close to all museum visitors. And what a welcome they got! The new technology clearly intrigued people, keeping both Charlie and Ali busy throughout the evening.The 3D printing station at the opening of Pop Art Design –exhibition is the first of the four occasions that Aalto FabLab will be at EMMA this spring. You can catch us during the Children’s Museum Festival on 28.-29.3. as well as at EMMA on POP! –event on April 26th. At both events the printers and our staff will be at the museum from 12-15.00.
