TEMPLES & TELESCOPES

Searching for beauty somewhere between myth and science. Work and process by Kim Pimmel

Working on a geometric baseplate for the red letters. Printed in 3 parts… Sticking them together with glue and epoxy… Good fun

"Kim Pimmel’s work embodies endless experimentation, fueled by a fascination for the organic flow of patterns, textures and nature’s prophecies"

Nikon Asia asked of they could write about Compressed 02 for their site. I was happy to oblige them and answer some interview questions about my work and how I’m inspired by ‘nature’s processes’ - really curious what prophecies they wrote about.

Adventures in 3d printing - used PLA for the first time yesterday (in red), with not much success. Need to work on the right setup. ABS (in white) still works great though.
