Artist Impression of an Earthquake - Luke Jerram


Seismogram of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and its sculptural expression by Luke Jerram.

"One of the most impressive sulptures by Jerram was made to contemplate the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan. According to the artist’s webpage:
“To create the sculpture a seismogram of the earthquake, was rotated using computer aided design and then printed in 3 dimensions using rapid prototyping technology.”

This technique could be defined the tactile counterpart of geologic sonification, mastered by Alessandro Montanari, one of the main figures of the Coldigioco environment."
