On the occasion of the update of the White Paper on the Interrelation between Art, Science, Technology and Society in Spain of the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT), Pep Gatell, president of the Épica Foundation, conceptualizes, designs and develops a new format for the publication.
Gatell proposes an object as an artistic piece that arises with the intention of connecting the more physical and aesthetic part of a “book” with the sustainable and digital dimension. The result of this conceptualization process has been the development of a 3D model prepared for free digital printing that represents the White Paper and that allows each face of the model to be individually recognized by a computer vision system through a mobile application that is able to recognize the object.
The Book and its object were presented last 15th June at Sónar +D in Barcelona.
The components of the book are available in open source, being possible to print them in 3D for its construction. In this .zip you can download the files and the instructions. Once the piece is built, download the application here and explore!
