ARTIST OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE WITH 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY
Exeter Phoenix has teamed up with the University of Exeter’s Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM) to offer artists the opportunity to explore the possibilities of making work in the emerging technologies of 3D printing.
WHAT IS 3D PRINTING?
Also known as rapid prototyping, desktop fabrication or additive manufacturing, this is a manufactoring process whereby a real object is created from a 3D computer-modelled design. The digital model is sent to a 3D printer that can print the design, layer by layer, in a variety of materials to form a real object.
We are looking for:
Artists currently working in any medium who are interested in investigating ways that this technology could be used to develop or bring new possibilities and ways of making into their practice. No previous experience is required but basic computer skills will be beneficial.
This opportunity will include the following stages:
• A day long workshop which will introduce artists to the technology, software and potential uses of additive layer manufacturing.
• A further workshop will develop skills in the relevant design software to create a 3D design.
• All participating artists will then get the chance to develop and produce a new piece of three dimensional work at CALM
• All works will go on display and artists may submit a further commission proposal
• One artist will be selected to develop a further commission and exhibition opportunity
TO APPLY: Please read the attached Guidelines before applying. Applicants are asked to send a CV & short artist’s statement about your current practice to
DEADLINE: Friday 18 May 2012

Come join us for Artsmatrix LIVE where we will be streaming Illustrator Jonny Hannah. Hosted in Plymouth and available at the Exeter Phoenix and Bristol Spike Island via our interactive technology.
Jonny Hannah studied at the Cowdenbeath College of Knowledge, Liverpool Art School & then the Royal College of Art. For the last twelve years he has been a freelance illustrator, & is represented by the Heart Agency. His many clients include The Sunday Telegraph, The New York Times & The St. Kilda Courier.
In 2000, a collaborative animation project with Jonathan Hodgson resulted in The Man with the Beautiful Eyes, a five-minute animated adaptation of A Charles Bukowski poem. And 2005 saw the release of his only childrens picture book, Hot Jazz Special, which the late, great George Melly described as A beautiful book.
Any spare minute is spent working on new projects for his own Cakes & Ale Press, busily creating books, posters, prints & occasionally teatowels.
He happily lives in Southampton, with Sharon & their two bairns, & is Course Leader for the Illustration BA at Southampton Solent School of Art & Design. Jonny enjoys nothing better than going to his studio in the Arches, to illustrate, paint & savour the odd Tunnocks Caramel Wafer with a fresh cup of coffee.

‘Doing it’ was a film project lead byPeter Snelling, My Pockets, and supported by Exeter Phoenix Digital, which enabled teenagers make short funny films about sex and relationships.
From bad snogging and embarrassing sex education classes to what girls really think about boys and what boys really think about girls. The films used puppets made by the teenagers to star in the films and all the films will be written shot and edited by the young people from Tiverton and Exmouth, in Devon, with support from award winning filmmakers.
The project was funded by ‘First Light’.
