Nora Toure: Kadet,  could you let us know about your background and what brought you to 3D printing?

Kadet Kuhne: I’ve been working as a visual and sound artist in different mediums for many years, most notably experimental video and electronic music. Parallel to creating original works, I’ve been working as a sound designer for the film, game and commercial industries, as well as a professor teaching audio related courses at various colleges and universities. 

Through these practices it has been on my mind to find a way to make visible the invisible phenomenon of waveforms and particles, and to create objects that reflect the conceptual underpinnings of my media works. When I came across a 3D printed sculpture online I was struck with so many ideas at once, and quickly began researching software, materials, printers and community resources to start making my own designs and prints.
