Daniel Hilldrup, artist in residence at the London Metropolitan University, recently unveiled new artwork in a series titled “Fragments in Time.” Two pieces, Flux and Aquiform in Rest, were produced by Objet Ltd. on an Objet Connex 3D Printer, a system designed to print multiple materials and properties in a single print run.
“Necessity being the mother of invention, I’m often influenced and motivated by technology, so I keep an ear to the ground for new technologies,” Hilldrup says. “It was the Objet Connex technology that inspired these pieces. For example, without the multi-material aspect it would not have been possible to print the Flux candelabra, and if I was to produce it via traditional methods—casting it in a block of glass—it would be a very difficult thing to achieve, and there would be a loss of control over the final piece.”
Flux depicts black candle wax melting into the liquid base of a candelabra, captured, like a fossil, at a specific moment in time. The fluid wax was printed in Objet TangoBlackPlus, rubber-like material, which gives the element the appearance of melting into liquid, but it is in fact encased in a solid base of Objet VeroClear a transparent, rigid material. The removable candle holders were printed separately in Objet VeroBlack, a rigid, opaque, black material. Hilldrup finished the pieces by hand, polishing the surfaces to achieve desired clarity. Aquiform in Rest is a free-standing sink basin possessing a sculptural form. As its name suggests, it captures the motion of agitated water within a constrained volume. Printed in Objet clear transparent material, it has been finished with a two-pack polyurethane paint.
“My interest is the creation of functional sculpture and innovative object forms where there is an emphasis on the aesthetic and narrative of a piece, but not at the expense of usability. I wish to explore the boundaries between art and design by embracing digital tools, manufacturing technologies and through associated process pipelines and craft.”

Kanye West makes his runway shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti, but for sneakers, he’s a Nike man. (Well, with occasional pit stops at Vuitton.) The company announced today the official release date of its second sneaker with the rapper-turned-designer, the Air Yeezy II, which hits stores globally June 9. There are a wealth of minute details to puzzle over, from the “anaconda-texture leather” panels to the nods to ancient civilizations, like the hieroglyphics on the loop strap spelling out YZY and the falcon insignia on the tongue. (The Ancient Egyptian god Horus, god of the sky, war, and hunting, was commonly depicted with the head of a falcon.) And those looking to walk a mile in Kanye’s shoes will be particularly pleased. These boast a slimmed-down silhouette originally derived from tailoring the prototypes directly to West’s foot.
