How to Make a Utah Teapot
2016
Video, 10:55


Exhibition text from Make Default at Hordaland Kunstsenter:
Magnhild Øen Nordahl’s video piece How to Make a Utah Teapot shows ceramic artist Anne-Lise Karlsen wheel throwing a Utah Teapot, a standardised reference object common in 3D modeling software. The model was developed by computer scientist Martin Newell in the mid-1970s and the computer-generated teapot has since then achieved a unique cybercultural status due to its widespread usage as a standard function in the feature libraries of 3D modeling software. Read a review of the exhibition.
