Exploring Physical Topography

February 22 2015

Expedition Video

My recent work has explored translating birds eye view photographs into physical 3D printed sculptures. Many of the images I use are found or in the public domain. I would love to use drone photography to explore the divides between the urban/suburban and suburban/rural divides in Ohio. You can see examples of this work on my website www.nathanielhartman.com. Thank you for your support!! Read background

Expedition Background

My background is in digital fabrication, art, technology, sculpture, and symbiosis.

I love translating data, in any form, into physical and non-physical forms.

3D printing has been a great way for me to explore ideas and iterate quickly.

If I am one of the first three projects to raise $100 towards my cause I'll receive a free drone! makezine.com/2015/01/29/openexplorer-drone-microsponsorship

Any help towards that goal would be very appreciated.

I believe that using my own drone photographs will enhance and further my artistic practice.

Continue exploring!

hey nathan, very cool idea. What is this piece we're looking at, I of course am biased as an avid ocean enthusiast, but it looks like the bow of a shipwreck!

Hi Erika,

It is actually a missile fragment from a drone strike, extruded and 3D printed.

It does really look like radar imagery of a shipwreck though!

Much of my work explores landscape as a way to engage the topics that people do not want to talk about.

I'm interested in translating this to a wider community through sight specific imagery.
