It is more than coincidental that the object produced by FABMOBs|ATMOStag, the relief, made use of the illusion that the sculptural material was being raised above the background plane. This illusion supported the sensation of immersion through the strange equilibrium that reliefs projected for over 1000 years in the world of art. With the advent of additive 3Dprinting, were material is in fact, successively added until the desired form is attained, relief really is being raised above to achieve its effect. Thus, additive fabrication is the true realization, after a thousand years of trying, of the ideal relief sculptural technique.
ATMOStag_tiles might not be very useful just yet… but they are unique, beautiful objects that can be produced in a variety of materials, colors, textures and topographies.
