In the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve and Dia de Los Muertos (translating into “Day of The Dead”, a Mexican celebration of the cycle of life), 3D printing produces a wide variety of festive décor. Innovation takes as many forms as it does inspiration. Functional prototypes are ingenuity of 3D; art and design are the imagination of 3D. 3D printing has brought us cranial implants and festive Catarina Sugar Skulls.
“The goals of reflective practice fall into many categories. They may include improving practice instrumentally, “just doing it better,” by understanding how to apply wisdom, artistry and personal practical knowledge gained through experience; (professional, academic, technological, knowledge, etc)… or improving practice through the use of more critical techniques, that is, by better understanding the workings of power and ideology in institutions, practices, and structures of work and thus aiming for more equitable and less oppressive conditions. Encouraging transformational learning and perspective shifts through reflective techniques. Postmodern and post-structural perspectives understand how the co-construction of subjectivities or categories of identity are intrinsically bound up with how power/ knowledge and language/ discourse structures operate in relationship with others; theretofore enhancing the long-term personal value and holistic appreciation of the professionals’ ethical and moral practice.”
