You can have spent yesterday nursing your Super Bowl party hangover, but one artist duo spent their Monday additional productively: visualizing and 3D printing data of the game into a sculpture.
It is the latest addition to the series VERSUS 0.02 [gridiron], by media artists and professors Margarita Benitez and Markus Vogl. The artists have 3D printed sculptures via data of each Super Bowl game at any time, via a method of transmuting yards traveled into geometric arcs.
“The sculptures analyze the game play by play and visualize the distance the ball traveled regardless of type of play,” the artists explain on their website.

The sculptures are comprised of a series of arcs on a flat plate. Each layer represents one play, the arc’s dimensions determined by the distance the ball traveled during that play. Each team is assigned one side of the sculpture, and the kickoff is represented by the arc at the quite front.

As a outcome, the sculptures take on a rhythmic, wave-like high end when saw of above, tracing the path of the ball back and forth across the field. The dynamic sculptures take around five days to print, as seen in the timelapse video at a lower place.

Part of a series of “sonically interpreted sports events”, the project follows VS 0.01 [eight-ball], for that Benitez and Vogl turned the movements of billiards into a sound composition.
Seen together, the plastic sculptures appear a bit like abstract architectural models; but the artists have in addition made an online keep where football fans can have their favourite Super Bowl game printed out in a variety of materials, of cost-effective sandstone, to 24k gold-plated steel. A ideal decorative object for the households of sports fanatics, art lovers, and data nerds alike.
