MCASB Not Fence-Sitting About John Connor & Collaborators

17 Aug 2015 12:22 PM | Anonymous

The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara has just put a lot of confidence in the hands of three very innovative artists. MCASB recently commissioned John Connor for their latest limited edition work of art, a 3D-printed sculpture titled TDE: Fence Burner. The piece was produced in collaboration with two other talented contemporary artists from California. 

The small-scale piece is a 3D-printed replica of a partially destructed chain-link fence, modeled after a real one that appeared in downtown Los Angeles one fateful night: the night that Connor’s artistic collaborators Sayre Gomez and JPW3 each had their first solo show in L.A.

With the help of Gomez and JPW3, the full-size parking lot fence was scanned, rendered and reproduced in plastic using a 3D printer. The piece was then plated in nickel to produce the final product, which the artists intend to utilize as an incense burner. A second version of the project was also created, a poster featuring a print-ready file of the 3D digital render in a dynamic artistic composition.

TDE: Fence Burner was commissioned as part of MCASB’s limited edition program, a process in which artists are commissioned to experiment and create innovative new artworks as a benefit for MCASB’s exhibitions and educational programs. For inquiries or to purchase a limited edition of TDE: Fence Burner, you can contact Frederick Janka, Director of Development at MCASB.
