Printing Niagara Falls

By Rebecca Harris

Printing Niagara Falls (2015) aims to address the relationship between nature and technology through the creation of a fake nature. The work was a small scale, artificial waterfall that flowed from the mouth of an everyday printer. Connected to the printer was a laptop streaming a live feed of Niagara Falls and speakers projecting the sound of crashing water. Partly inspired by the 3D printer, the pieces aim to create an experience that encouraged the viewer to reconsider 'nature', and what that may come to mean in the future.
