Professional Football Championship Game 50:

versus 0.02 [gridiron] artistically interprets the game data of the 60 minute football game into 3D printed depictions that visually condense the game into a single frame.

The sculptures analyze the game play by play and visualize the distance the ball traveled regardless of type of play. Our 3D software then builds arcs based on the distance the ball travels. In order to keep the flow of the game recognizable, the teams are assigned a side, Penalties are factored into the beginning of the play.
Touchbacks are registered 2 yards behind the goal line, Touchdowns 5 yards, extra points 20 yards, Field goals 15 yards and safeties 9 yards. If a ball is brought out from the end zone it registers at the 0 yard line of the respective team. In order to keep the flow of the game recognizable, the teams are assigned a side and remain on that side. The kickoff team can be identified by the kickoff arch. Plays are numerically advanced from the front to the back.

//benitez_vogl, Margarita Benitez and Markus Vogl develop work within a hybrid art praxis since 2000. They question contemporary issues concerning technology, such as exploring the mediation of information in our lives. Their current research explores 3D printing and transformation of the human form with through concepts of biomimicry, the concept of pret-a-faire (ready-to-make) thru generative fashion applications and open source tools for artists.
