In March 2015 Allahyari and Rourke released The 3D Additivist Manifesto, a call to push creative technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. The 3D Additivist Cookbook is composed of responses to that call, an extensive catalog of digital forms, material actions, and post-humanist methodologies and impressions.
#Additivism is a portmanteau of additive and activism: a movement concerned with critiquing ‘radical’ new technologies in fablabs, workshops, and classrooms; at social, ecological, and global scales. The 3D Additivist Cookbook questions whether it’s possible to change the world without also changing ourselves, and what the implications are of taking a position.This archive contains 3D models and textures from The 3D Additivist Cookbook in .stl and .obj format in addition to a 3D-PDF of the Cookbook published in February 2017 by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke.The 3D Additivist Cookbook is a compendium of strategies that aim to turn 3D printing into a tool for emancipation, activism and disruption. It brings together speculative texts, 3D models, prototypes, recipes and practical suggestions.For further information see: http://additivism.org/cookbookhttp://networkcultures.org/blog/publication/the-3d-additivist-cookbook/
