How to build your own art piece on a cheap computer
In an era of digital fabrication and 3D printing, how do you make a piece of art?
It might be easier than you think, and in fact it can be cheaper than you might think.
This is what we did for the next week.
First, we asked our editors and the staff at Art Basel to suggest the best tools for building a piece.
Then we took the top 10 tools from each category and narrowed it down to two finalists.
From there, we narrowed it to two artists who were ready to show off their artworks.
We asked the winner to share their story, share how they built their work, and how they chose to use the tools.
We also asked the top artist to share what their favorite tools are.
To see what each of our finalists came up with, read on.
First we took a look at what you need to know about using the tools you need in order to build an art piece.
And for the sake of keeping this post as comprehensive as possible, we’ve included a list of the tools and their price ranges.
If you want to know more about how the competition was structured, we’ll also have more details in a future post.1.
