Technogel® believes that artists, thanks to their outstanding imaginative and creative thinking, are able to discover new shapes and dimensions of design, applying the 3D properties of Technogel® to new concepts, techniques and industries. The results that emerge from the artists' creative work contribute to further develop the technological and innovative knowledge about Technogel, thus increasing its potentiality in industrial applications. Furthermore, prestigious international galleries have shown great interest in exhibiting artworks based on Technogel® technology, which allows the company to have a significant role in some of the most important creative venues around the world. Technogel® Art Project has so far supported, among others: Rachel Whiteread (2001), Mariko Mori (2003), the Cracking Art Group (2008), Charlotte Mumm (2009), and Akira Arita (2009).
Between art and science
Since 2001 Technogel® has sponsored an annual selection of young and rising artists, allowing them to independently express their creativity by developing an artwork made with Technogel. The continuous collaboration between artistic thinkers and Technogel® has led to the establishment of the Technogel® Art Project. The Technogel® Art Project, however, is not only an artistic collaboration, but it also comes from a precise scientific interest.
