The "3D Additivist Cookbook," devised and edited by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, is a free compendium of imaginative, provocative works from over 100 world-leading artists, activists, and theorists. The "3D Additivist Cookbook" contains .obj and .stl files for the 3D printer as well as critical and fictional texts, templates, recipes, (im)practical designs, and methodologies for living in this most contradictory of times. In March 2015 Allahyari and Rourke released "The 3D Additivist Manifesto," a call to push the 3D printer and other creative technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative, and the outright weird. The "3D Additivist Cookbook" is composed of responses to that call, an extensive catalog of digital forms, material actions, and post-humanist methodologies and impressions. #Additivism is a portmanteau of additive and activism: a movement concerned with critiquing "radical" new technologies in fablabs, workshops, and classrooms; at social, ecological, and global scales. The 3D Additivist Cookbook questions whether it is possible to change the world without also changing ourselves, and what the implications are of taking such a position.
