Making Art 4.0 is an idea by Scan And Make (scanandmake.com), an innovative start up based in Liverpool, whose aim is to provide a source of income or extra income to everybody.
Scan And Make promotes the use of computer controlled technologies like 3D printing, CNC milling, laser cutting and other digital techniques to a wider audience.
The idea behind the contest and the exhibition is to stimulate the creativity of the international art community and promote the usage of the aforementioned techniques.
About Scan And Make
Scan And Make is a platform for creativity, design art and technology, in other words, it is the common ground for Artists, Designers, Makers and Users. Artists and Designers create works that can be transformed in files, with the help of the Makers and that can be sold on our e-shop.
Makers have the skills and the technology to turn Artists’ and Designers’ works of art into files that are available to be downloaded on the platform. They can help Users to realize their projects. Users can materialize their personal ideas or get inspired by Artists’ and Deisgners’ projects that they can buy on the e-shop
As a small start up business, we require funding to bring our artistic concept to San Francisco. Our aim is to promote Making Art 4.0 across all continents, introducing people to different forms of digital art and promoting the work of upcoming and established artists. We believe San Francisco is the perfect location for where art meets tech. Our artists use robotics, sculpture, lights, sound, video, and digital technologies to alternately engage and embrace the digital world
We have secured our exhibition space in San Francisco and are proud to be exhibiting at the Firehouse venue, part of the the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture.
The Firehouse is a charming event space situated on the edge of San Francisco Bay. The windows overlook the bay waters and the adjacent patios feature unparalleled views of Angel Island and Alcatraz.
Get more info about the second edition of the Making Art 4.0 contest. If you are an artist, a fashion, graphic or industrial designer, and you have the curiosity to experiment with new technologies, you can apply to display your work in the Fort Mason Art Center in San Francisco.

Timea Balo- As an artist, I combine colors and forms to capture moments, moods and ideas. The MoodBox is a physical representation of the work that I create in a digital space; it is a light box that combines different colors in different forms to capture moments and give a sense of mood. The color combinations are randomized and so are the forms, but the change happens at exact intervals of time – there is no way to predict how the colors will change next, there is just the certainty that they will.
Making Art 4.0 t-shirt: the official outfit for Art 4.0 enthusiast!
Alexis Snell - Illustrator Alexis Snell has a website that is short on biographical details, but big on fabulous work. From famous mountains to iconic cocktails to old-school circus performers, her lino-cuts and wood-cuts sparkle with wit, style and technical prowess. We know she’s recently arrived in London and with a portfolio this darn impressive, it can’t be long before she’s in demand.
Cpstudio 46 - An idea, a project, an object, but also a lamp made with a 3D printer. The material is PLA, a biodegradable thermoplastic. We took a globe, we divided it following the bi-sectors and the obtained segments are designed to be 3D printed. Each segment has a magnet on each side for assembly, so you can fit the complete sphere or join the pieces to get the shape you want, with the color you prefer.
Paul Murrin - What is Making Twister? Twister is an artwork developed using a parametric algorithm. The underlying mathematical description is then interpreted to produce a set of shaped parts that are 3D printed. Once printed the parts are carefully painted using acrylic paint, laid out and glued as required. The result is an eye-catching piece with a mathematical beauty that looks different from every angle.

Novo Sapiens by Laurie Ramsell - This piece of work was the outcome of a six month residency with Birmingham Open Media, to explore new materials and technology for creating artwork. By investigating what it means to be human, and how such definitions are increasingly becoming blurred through transhuman politics, the residency used 3D printing as a medium for exploring the concept of the homunculus, a human made using artificial alchemical means.
3D Mona Lisa by Gianluca Spanu - The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait of Lisa Gherardini by the Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci that has been described as “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world”.
Astro by Mike Badger - Mike Badger, also famous as the frontman of the classic Uk band “The Las”, is one of the most affirmed sculptors in Liverpool. This piece is one of his first forays experimenting with 3d printers.
H3adtrauma by Jason Quinlan - It’s the result of the collaboration between American artist Jason Quinlan and the 3D Druckzentrum Ruhr collective based in Germany. It’s a very unique piece and fun recipe to build.
Tower of Blue Horses by Maxi Moeckel - A 3D-sculpture based on the famous painting “The tower of blue horses” by Franz Marc. It is made for 3D-printing.
Tyrell P34 by Luis Fernando Corado - An exact scaled replica of the iconic car.

Making Art 4.0
Scan And Make's first exhibition "Making Art 4.0 International contest for technology aided art" ran in Liverpool's iconic Radio City tower from 8th - 17th April 2017. The exhibition was the final stage of our inaugural art contest and twenty selected pieces by participating artists were on display. The public voted for their favorite piece and the winner won a cash prize of 3000€. All the art displayed was made using computer controlled techniques such as Laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC milling, robotics etc. Artists from all over Europe participated, adding a new horizon to the already rich Liverpool artistic landscape. The exhibition took place in the Radio City Tower, a well known landmark in Liverpool, which boasts spectacular views across the city.
These are the steps taken so far, and a sneaky preview of the future ones
Risks and challenges
We have already secured our space with the Fort Mason Center, but we need assistance in the promotion of the exhibition in San Francisco.
We have delivered a similar scale event in Liverpool with great success so we know there is a desire from artists, designers and makers for a platform to showcase their work.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
