SLEUMER

Noud Sleumer is a conceptual designer who's role is to critique ‘the act of making’. Within self-initiated and explorative projects his focus is trained on methods of deconstruction and reduction. Simplicity is the tool that underlies these approaches and enables Sleumer to create new playgrounds of creativity, in which we can collectively re-examine our relationship to man-made matter.

These crafted Christian statues were broken, but saved from being thrown away. The valuation of broken stuff is often limited to something that is leftover, but due to technological improvement new making-techniques allow us to repair anything that is broken. After analyzing the broken parts, 3D models of modern-day icons have automatically been selected from an online database. A 3D printer is placing the old craft-technique of statue making next to new adaptive manufacturing procedures.
