    ScanAndMake has held its second exhibition "Making Art 4.0 international contest for technology aided art" in San Francisco's Fort Mason Firehouse between the 26th of April and the 6th May 2018. The exhibition was the final act of the Making Art 4.0 contest won by Paul Murrin and Felipe Ortiz. The winner was selected by the visitors .

    All the art displayed at the exhibition has the peculiarity of being made using computer controlled techniques such as Laser cutting, 3D Printing, CNC Milling, Robotics etc. Art from artists from all over Europe and beyond has been displayed in the first edition of this exhibition. The location is a famous spot in the Californian city, and has got some stunning views on Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay.


    Making Art 4.0 is an idea by ScanAndMake (scanandmake.com), a young and innovative startup based in Liverpool, UK.

    ScanAndMake aims to promote the use of computer controlled technologies like 3D Printing, CNC Milling, Laser cutting and others to a wider audience, enabling them to emerge from the techie bubble where they are now trapped.

    The idea behind the contest and the exhibition is to stimulate the creativity of the international art community and to push the usage of the above mentioned techniques.

    The city of Liverpool, where the ScanAndMake Startup is based, is a flamboyant city rich in cultural and artistic activities, famous for its musical scene and for its museums and cultural institutions (like Tate, or the world famous Liverpool Biennial). This setting offers to the exhibition an audience that is prepared and open to new forms of art.

    All the art displayed has got a peculiarity: Reproducibility. After the exhibition, instructions will be available to make it possible to reproduce the piece.

    ScanAndMake’s mission is to create a new front in the Art Market, by applying the same revolution that happened to the distribution of music and books (with the arrival of digital distribution platforms) to the art world.

    Not only will this create a new source of income for artists but also for the users of the website: individuals will be able to re-create artistic objects by downloading the files and producing their own pieces who can be sold locally according to the license.

    Imagine a scenario where the artist can sell the original source file of his art and the instructions for the reproduction to thousands of people for an affordable price, earning possibly more than what he would have done with the sale of the unique piece, and at the same time expanding the diffusion of his art to the whole world.

    This process doesn’t replace the art market dynamics, that is based on the uniqueness of the piece, but adds new scenarios and new markets in a sector that has been suffering in the last decades.

    The files of the 20 selected pieces, are sold on the ScanAndMake’ E-shop.
