2012

In 2012, iMAL, Center for Digital Cultures and Technology, will open the first Brussels-based creative FabLab. A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering digital fabrication.

Activities

2017

Shiv Integer is a software robot that randomly selects 3D printable objects on a website, assembles them into sculptures and posts them back online. Is it art or spam? The 3D printing community remains divided on the question. For this first Shiv Integer exhibition, the artists will show a 3D-printed selection of its sculptures, and a visualisation of the online debates it fostered.

2017

Following up to our introduction to 3D modeling in February/March, we organise a more advanced workshop on Blender for 3D printing. During these two Saturday afternoons we will be exploring tools and techniques for parametric and generative design.

2017

From March 6 until March 24 2017 Marcio Ambrisio is in residency at iMAL, where he will work together with Yacine Sebti on his interactive installation 'MOVIOLA'.

2016

In her Filament Sculptures project, pioneer digital artist LIA has been researching the behaviour of filament-based 3D printers. During this masterclass, she will explore with the participants new approaches for 3D printing sculptures, based on computation, the physical properties of the printing material and direct control of the machine.

2016

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez & JODI create 3D-printed sculptured objects, that explore incongruous hybridisations and errors created by the Internet found objects, algorithms and digital fabrication machines.

2016

iMAL invited Tobias Sternberg, a Swedish artist living in Berlin, for a short research residency in July to experiment with digital fabrication. 

2016

Discover and experience the creativity of fablabs and hackerspaces of Brussels. iMAL invites artists, designers, makers, hackers and tinkerers to exhibit a selection of their projects.

 

2016

Blender is a powerful, free and open source 3D modelling software, used for animation, video games, data visualisation or designing objects for digital fabrication. Join us during these two afternoons, and let's discover the basics and possibilities of Blender!

2016

Prints, Videos, Electromagnetic and Light Sculptures.
An audiovisual installation about remembrance, childhood and territory.

13 May: Apero expo (18:00-21:00) | 15 May: Kids guided tour (15:00-17:00)

2015

An installation by Philippe Elipeo showing his latest Protomorphic Sculptures, large 3D prints presented here in a composition playing on optical illusion, mirrors and the ambiguity between real and computed images.

News
