WANDERERS: AN ASTROBIOLOGICAL EXPLORATION, 2014
The Sixth Element Collection by Stratasys
Produced on a Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 3D Printer
Materials: VeroCyan, VeroClear, VeroMagenta, VeroYellow
Wanderers: An Astrobiological Exploration, consists of four 3D printed wearables, each of which is designed to contain and generate life-sustaining elements. Exploring the idea of voyaging beyond planet Earth to inhabitable landscapes in the solar system, Oxman’s collection is the first color, multi-material, 3D printed range of wearables aiming to embed living matter within 3D structures that augment the environment, enabling visitation to these deadly environments.
AL-QAMAR (قمر): Luna’s Wanderer*
Inspired by one of the most luminous objects in the sky, this piece embodies the surface qualities of the Moon. Akin to a wearable biodome, the exterior contains spatial spherical moon-shaped pods for algae-based air-purification and biofuel collection to produce and store oxygen. These highly detailed levels of spatial and material variation are only possible with Stratasys triple-jetting 3D printing technology due to its versatility of material properties, from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrantly colored and standard to biocompatible.
