Barack Obama’s 3D voice print ‘New industrial revolution’ by French digital artist Gilles Azzaro was unveiled for the first time on November 7, 2013 at 3D Printshow in London.

Gilles Azzaro’s work principally involves the three-dimensional materialization of voices and their audio reproduction. Using cutting edge technologies he reveals the forms of the invisible, transforming and magnifying them into truly amazing lunar-like landscapes. To better define his work, he created the profession of “Sculpteur de Voix” (voice sculptor).

Azzaro’s latest work is the materialization of thought and speech of Barack Obama’s ‘New industrial revolution’. Throughout the 39-second recording, a synchronised laser beam scans the reliefs of the vocal print, marking accurately the exact location of every sound and nuance. The sculpture was then printed on a desktop 3D printer in collaboration with designer Patrick SARRAN.

This 3D printed sculpture will be exhibited at 3D print show in Paris this month and in New York in February 2014.
