The Sense of Touch as reinvented in the ColorSense color & trend forecast looked at the tactility of 3D printing – both as an innovation and an art form.  Here, we see how Chinese designer and artist Hongtao Zhou uses 3D printing to replicate cityscapes – created from the lifted letters on a page. With an idea in mind, Zhou attempts to get his shrunken buildings and skyscrapers to match that of his vision – another example of how this modern printing technology allows people to add dimension to their vision.
