CONSUMER TO CONTENT PRODUCER: How accessible 3D printing is changing the way we approach art & design 

As 3D printing and scanning enters the realm of everyday technology, the role of the average individual begins to shift from a consumer to a content producer. As former artist-in-residence at MakerBot Industries, digital artist Jonathan Monaghan shares his experiences working on projects which offer new approaches to everything from museum collections to portraiture. Monaghan discusses the implications of more democratized 3D technologies and how they are changing the way we experience the world around us; empowering the average person to be designers, archivists, content producers and content distributors all at the same time.
