A recent feature from NYU IT’s web publication Connect highlights the work of Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford, known collectively as TheLaserGirls. In addition to teaching Integrated Media Arts courses here at CALA and managing NYU’s Laguardia Co-op and Studio spaces, TheLaserGirls have spent the past five years making their mark on the 3D printing world with their innovative techniques and designs.
Inspired by a mutual affinity for cosplay and the seemingly endless application of 3D printing technology, the pair first achieved notoriety with the release of their vibrant, highly detailed 3D printed manicures. They’ve since gone on to create a wide range of art objects and accessories—from Thor’s armor to Lunafreya’s trident to Dungeons & Dragons-inspired metal jewelry—documenting the process on their website and showcasing the finished pieces at galleries and conventions all across the country.
