Technique

The invention of 3D printing becomes the ideal solution for Lokman to realize his goals. Now, his virtual worlds can be printed and become real. The conception of his ideas starts in a more conventional way. Café terraces and trains are his favourite places to develop his creations before the computer is used to experiment with the construction of virtual scenes. 

These scenes often contain hundreds of 3d printed objects, sometimes geometrically ordered, sometimes randomly composed. He constructs them in virtual space first, and adds the moving images and animated light sources to test the interaction and to preview the final effect. The maximum size that the printer can handle is limited so often the model is divided into smaller segments which are printed separately and then glued together.  The resulting sculpture more resembles a bas-relief than a movie screen. To correct the distortion caused by the peaks and valleys of the sculpture Lokman composes and edits the virtual 3d objects while projecting them on the printed versions.
