Standing but invisible, essential but forgotten. Beautiful nonetheless.
‘Brim’ is the thin supporting base in 3D printing that serves to hold the object structurally stable while printing. Since the invention of 3D printers in the 1980s,
this supportive element were to be disposed of after being detached from the printed object.
However, when one takes a closer look at this 0.2mm thin structure, its beauty starts to reveal itself, even reflecting some aspects of our own lives.
There comes a time in life where we fail to fully realize our beauty and strength and become a supporting role for others. By shinning the spotlight on this often forgotten Brim,
we aim to encourage the viewers to take a chance to look back on themselves and get reminded of ones worth and purpose in life again.
