Experimental 3D scanning workshop with artist 1iing heaney

Time: 2-5.30pm Wednesday 4th September 2019

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Admission free - All welcome - Booking required


To coincide with her exhibition Hyper- at Pallas Projects/Studios, the artist 1iing heaney hosts Experimental 3D scanning workshop.

Using clay, paper, wire, and other materials, participants are invited to make physical sculptures that will be 3D scanned using your phone, and placed in a digital replica of the Pallas Projects gallery space.

Laptops are not required, but if you would like to bring along your own computer, please download blender 2.79, VisualSFM, and Meshlab and bring a 3 button mouse.

This workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 people. Please book your place using the link provided. 


Hyper- is a new body of work by 1iing heaney. Using a range of mediums from 3D animation to riso print, this exhibition considers digital space as an extension of the geological world. Following a residency in the Burren College of Art, this work has been emerging since 2016. Further development continued during Lay of the Land’s RES 1 residency in Lauragh, Co. Kerry in March of this year. These remote landscapes have served as a vital backdrop for exploring the interface between the Digital Age and natural world.

1iing heaney is a visual artist experimenting with 3D modeling and animation from Bray, Co. Wicklow. She received her BA in Fine Art Media & Visual Culture from NCAD in 2015. With a focus on the material nature of digital life, her work explores geological timescales in parallel to human technological intervention. 1iing uses print, drawing, sculpture, simulations and 3D scans to consider the future of nature. 1iing has taken part in both group and solo exhibitions. Selected shows include solo exhibitions, Terrestrial/Satellite in 126 Artist-Run Gallery, Galway (2018) & World Geometry in MART, Dublin (2016). Group shows include Geological Cake, Burren College of Art Gallery, Co. Clare (2017), HIVE, Steambox Gallery, Dublin 8 (2017), Dancing Girl Emoji, Delta Sorority, Online (2016) and The stretch is better than the case, Upominki, Rotterdam (2015). 1iing has received support from the Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award, Burren College of Art (2016) & Wicklow County Arts Office (2016 & 2019). She also facilitates workshops using the 3D software Blender in Block-T, Dublin.
