About Tactography ™ Technology

Based on the principle of 3D printer - the making of three-dimensional objects by means of a digital file - Gabriel Bonfim reached two processes that considered satisfactory: reproduce his works with accessibility for the visually impaired.

The first was thought to the photographs Bonfim had in its collection. In this process, traditional digital image was sent to a software programmer and pointing to the computer estimates of proportions and depths - a job quite detailed marking depths point to point. From this technique, They were printed 12 images of a special series captured by Bonfim with the great Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli during a tour in Turkey, in 2014, that reveal the key moments of the star, including the family.

The second process, together with the studio Digitalwerkstatt, German Kuenzler and Claudio Daniel Koelliker, Bonfim come to a solution where the traditional photo capture already generated the 3D work. Was, then, who invited the young Brazilian dancer Dennis Vieira, member of the Opera Ballet Zurich, in Switzerland, to this challenge.

The photo shoot took two moments. First, Bonfim Vieira photographed with a digital camera. Then, a 3D scanner was reading the same visual information, creating the digital modeling of the dancer. Sent to the 3D printer, the photograph was printed embossed. With this process, More were produced 12 works.
