Mar 2, 2017

From December 2, 2016 to February 5, 2017 Link Cabinet presented Material Speculation: ISIS, a project by Morehshin Allahyari.


Morehshin Allahyari uses 3D printing technology as a tool for alternative artifact archiving, as well as a means of political resistance and documentation. In her series Material Speculation: ISIS she reconstructs selected artifacts of historical value that were destroyed by ISIS in 2015. After collecting and researching vast numbers of images and documents of the destroyed objects, she is able to recreate and print a 3D model of the artifact.
