Artist Ioan Florea 3D Prints Liquid Metal Transfers

"Tactile Histories " Ioan Florea solo exhibition - 3D printing revolution -From Cyrus Cylinder to Nanotechnology

CARBONDALE, Ill., Oct. 1, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Using the latest cutting edge technologies and his unique 3D printed liquid metal transfer technique artist Ioan Florea transforms and brings to life artifacts and objects from the past fusing old history with the present.

Florea completely encapsulates with a seamless 3D printed liquid metal transfer organic shapes the Ford Torino American symbol of muscle car with a European connection, creating a visual effect unseen before.

Inspired by 2600 years old Cyrus Cylinder which is considered "the first bill of human rights" or first press release, Ioan Florea recreated an oversized 9 feet tall contemporary version having 3D printed transferred the Declaration of Universal Human Rights embedded into it. Florea grew up under a Communist regime where the Human Rights were nonexistent. The Cyrus Cylinder symbolizes multiculturalism, tolerance, peace and freedom.

Another piece in "Tactile Histories" show is a 1800 wagon with a 3D printed liquid metal transfer 20 feet long cover. The covered wagon represents the pioneering field of 3D printing and is a symbol of immigration.

Nanotubes and Nanohaystacks 10 feet tall 3D printed liquid metal objects are influenced by the world of nanotechnologies and by his own experience of building haystacks in Transylvania.

Part of the installation are several large scale three-dimensional paintings with 3D text inspired by the U.S. citizenship test that Florea had to take.

Florea is using ultralight materials that defy gravity together with nano-materials and nano-pigments that dictate to the paint and polymers how to behave by creating internal three-dimensional structures with memory. All of this in combination with the 3D printing technology and the new transfer technique he invented allows him to experiment and explore new territories unthinkable few years ago.
