Abstract

Curious Cut-Aways is a collection of five 3D modeled visual art pieces that show the inner workings of influential technologies. They were on display at the Ames Public Library and were created to promote a more positive view of technologies that are being developed right now. The creator of the artwork holds the view that many of the problems surrounding the adoption of technologies are related to a lack of interest or understanding of them. The work was designed to be easily approachable by presenting easy to understand details in both the visual work and the associated captions. Curious Cut-Aways aims to help change people’s perceptions of technology now in order to create a better future tomorrow.
