Renowned European artist, Peter Jansen has created sculptures that focus on the body’s movement freeze-framed in time and space. As seen in Milan.

The Running Man


May 15th, 2008

Based in the Netherlands, he has been around for years but since exhibiting at the Milan fair in April, artist Peter Jansen is really getting noticed.

Jansen exhibited a series of polyamide figures, produced by using a rapid prototyping process. The resulting sculptures are striking to say the least.

His studies of Physics and Philosophy at university assisted in the development of ideas on transposition and movement. Capturing sequences of human movements in space and time in a single frame, the fascinating sculptures were a show-stopper in Milan, where they were exhibited with The Materialise Group.


With headquarters in Belgium (and branches all over the world), the Materialise Group is best known for its activities in the field of rapid industrial prototyping. Through its unique .MGX division for design products, Materialise is currently opening the market for customised Rapid Manufacturing.

Design and art studios all over the world are starting to use Materialise.MGX, to take their designs to another level.

Case in point – Running Man.
