3D Mapping Technology’s Shaping of Sculpture Space



Yutong, W., 2021. 3D Mapping Technology’s Shaping of Sculpture Space. United International Journal for Research & Technology (UIJRT), 3(2), pp.70-79.


With the rise of immersive art and its development to the 21st century, the impact of the art field in the face of the emerging new technologies and new media is reflected in the following three aspects, first of which is reflected in the transformation of artistic expression methods and media. : The rise of immersive art has expanded the technical methods of artistic creation, and new media methods have emerged at the historic moment, such as digital modelling technology, 3D scanning technology, 3D printing technology, 3D Mapping projection technology, AR, VR, MR and other technologies. Style art combines music, lighting, theatre and other media as artistic presentation methods to bring viewers a whole new experience; secondly, it is reflected in the turning of artistic expression objects and themes: artistic expression is no longer like the artists of the 1980s and 1990s. Limited to criticizing and reflecting on real life and living conditions, but more combining personal experience with public visual symbols and images, turning them into artistic expression methods, and creating works that can resonate with the public; finally new The influence of media technology on the field of art is manifested in the identity shift of the artist group: As the creation of contemporary artworks requires the intervention of new technical means, artists have gradually developed from individual independent creation to cross-border and cross-domain joint creation. Artists not only appeared in the public view as individuals, but began to cooperate with creators from different “non-art” professional fields in the form of art teams and groups, and then formed a new way of artwork.

At the same time, in this period of rapid technological development, the challenges and choices faced by artists are constantly increasing. The use of new materials and new technologies, as well as cross-border and cross-field cooperation, are constantly highlighting the infinite creation of this era. possibility. The same is true for sculpture art. As art for creating space and materials, the exploration of new materials and new technologies has never stopped. Sculpture artists always have the freshness of new things and the enthusiasm for creation. The ability to shape space brought by immersive art has also aroused great interest among sculpture artists. As the boundaries of sculpture continue to expand, sculpture creation has begun to rely on the support of various technical means. Emerging technologies represented by 3D Mapping have just proposed such a possibility. This article intends to discuss the use of this technology to shape the expression of sculpture space. By taking sculpture as the main body, it expands the research on the relationship between technical means and the sculpture itself and strives to find new ways to expand the expression of sculpture space. It involves cross-border language communication and learning, and the growth and cultivation of new creative thinking. It is in this context. Due to the richness, cutting-edge and unknownness of technology, artists are more concerned about their future creative path. full of expectations.
