For the launch of Android™ KitKat, Nestlé SA and NATIVE VML presented Chocnology: an exhibition of 3D-printed sculptures made entirely out of – yes, you guessed it – chocolate.
Ten local creators — Joey HIFI, Marchand Le Roux, Arno Kruger, Muti, Liron Segev, Rene Roussouw, Hans Fouche, Orijin, Native and Am I Collective — were selected to each design an edible artwork inspired by Android™ KitKat. The sculptures were revealed for the first time at the Museum of African Design (MOAD) on Thursday 7 November and were open for public viewing until Sunday 10 November 2013.
All of the designs for Chocnology were created with the Android™ operating system and freely available online 3D modelling tools. To bring the designs to life, a 3D printer that traditionally uses a plastic-based filament was manipulated to use chocolate as its raw material.
If like us, you couldn’t make it to MOAD this weekend to see the artworks first hand, have a look at the photographs from the exhibition below.
