Printed By Parkinson’s: A Machine with a Disease
Raising funds and awareness for Charité’s Parkinson research, MediaMonksproduced an art collection created by the first machine affected by a human disease. The collection comprises distorted 3D prints of cherished objects belonging to Parkinson patients.
The objects are informed by each patient’s tremor data, skewing the object’s shape to capture the impact of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to the collection, a website was designed to tell the patients’ stories and show renders of their objects and how Parkinson’s has affected them. The collection is set to be auctioned off on World Brain Day with all proceeds going to Charité’s research.
