Artist makes 3D printed "shelters" for hermit crabs


Japanese artist Aki Inomata has garnered a lot of attention for her projects through the years, but this one has a special place in our heart.

In 2009, Inomata studied the natural shape of hermit crab shells using a CT scanner and used this data with a 3D printer to reproduce these “homes”.

There was a time when I started to think, “What is real reality?” Living in an artificial society, a city, the “real” world” became unclear. I wanted to figure out something that could breach this barrier that could take the man made to the nature. – Aki Inomata
