RP mezuzah

The meeting between technology and design.
This project was the result of an initiative by the Israel Museum that asked designers to look at the potential of three-dimensional printing technology.

I decided to design a mezuzah, a follow-up to Johannes Gutenberg's decision to use his printing press first to print a bible. 
With the 3-D printing, I was able to create a homogeneous "material'' in which I designed bubbles which became the blessings that traditionally are on a parchment placed inside the mezuzah.

I made both clear and opaque mezuzahs to show that seeing the blessings is all a matter of belief.

Exhibited at:
