“I wanted to create something that never existed before. Something that will amaze us because it is not feasible by human hands,” says German artist Moto Waganari. From the realm of 3D printing a new genre of art is emerging, and Waganari’s work is a prime example. Creating wireframe-like sculptures of humans and animals, his final piece is both solid and intangible – designed to interact with light and create a partnering shadow.

Waganari work blurs the line between art and technology, using forms which seem to have jumped from an engineers screen. He even created his own custom printer which utilizes a modern sintering technology used in the automotive and aerospace industry. You can see more of Waganaris works on his personal site or if you can see which pieces are for sale at Artnet.
