The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful celebrates innovation, poses ethical questions and considers the future of the manufacturing process.

About

In partnership with the University of Lincoln, The National Centre for Craft & Design presents a thought provoking exhibition exploring 3D printing technology. The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful celebrates innovation, poses ethical questions and considers the future of the manufacturing process.

Works on display explore the innovative, political, social and environmental aspects of 3D printing. The show highlights that whilst the process is opening up new creative possibilities for makers, the technology also raises other complex questions – the role of designer and maker; authorship; our relationships with objects, customisation and mass production; conservation or changing history; environmental or a way of democratising medicine?

The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful is an immersive experience that includes light, sound and touch to create new levels of accessibility for audiences with different needs. The exhibition is part of an ongoing research study by the University of Lincoln into accessibility for visually impaired audiences.
