If you happen to come by some digital data of any kind, watch out – it might become a 3D print! Now we see artist Luke Jerram has produced a 3D print of an earthquake, taking the digital data from a seismometer, applying a bit of rotation and voila, a very cool 3D model. Called a “Seisomgram”, the work evidently represents nine minutes of the devastating Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami. 
Beautiful, memorable and fragile, like the lives it honors.
