Typeface: The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum

Typeface is a documentary film, produced by Kartemquin Films, focusing on a rural Midwestern museum (the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin) and print shop where international artists meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique.

 

Sculpting with Bees and 3D Printing

I’ve posted before about Hilary Berseth’s sculptures which he makes by placing armatures into bee hives but the 3B Printing Project takes this a step further by using 3B printed moulds. It’s an ad for honey but worth a look anyway. The first minute of the video is about beekeeping, the sculpture part starts after that.
