Technology and art continue to grow closer together as designers, artists, programmers, and engineers merge skill sets to create wonderful new things. A great example of this is the Dazzle Lamp created by Corneel Cannaerts a designer with some serious programming skills. Cannaerts wrote the program used to create the 3D models and print the lamp using a color 3D printer from Z-Corp.
Cannaerts software allows him to import image palettes from photographs and apply them to the lamps. The lamps are created using a gray resin with color applied during the printing process to the interior of the lamp. When illuminated, the color pattern glows from the inside.
