Description
Lot #7001 - This 3D-printed liquid-metal Ford Torino incorporates technology from the Second and Third Industrial Revolutions by combining a classic assembly-line vehicle with modern specialized technologies. The Torino's body was manufactured on the assembly line introduced by Henry Ford during the Second Industrial Revolution and is fused with the latest 3D printing technologies and materials, becoming the symbol of the transition to the Third Industrial Revolution. Ioan Florea has developed a process that produces a liquid-metal finish with the highest coefficient of reflectivity that encapsulates the entire car in a seamless liquid metal, creating a visual effect unseen before. Florea's artwork is culture on wheels, showing how the use of many technologies and materials reflects today's globalization. His work combines an iconic Ford with a fusion of liquid metal and nano- and ultra-light materials to create a unique display of the transition from mass production to mass customization in the industry. The Torino uses additive technology in the form of 3D-printed shapes to reflect light and give the car balance between the organic and geometric shapes. Not a running vehicle, it was created using a Voxeljet industrial 3D printer and fused deposition. The 3D-printed Torino appeared in more than 100 articles, publications, magazines and research papers worldwide and was presented at the New York International Auto Show, Rapid Show in Detroit and IMTS Chicago 2014. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 8:00 P.M. ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 18, 2017**
