THREE DANCING NYMPHS AT THE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOLLYHOCK HOUSE, HOLLYWOOD
My replica of the 1st-century A.D. marble relief from Roman Libya, Three Dancing Nymphs, is shown above on the first day of its installation at the Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House in Hollywood, California.
SCULPTURE FOR SONGS FOR DISASTER RELIEF AT 2017 VENICE BIENNALE
I manufactured this seven foot-long sculpture for Hong Kong-based artist Samson Young, whose installation, Songs for Disaster Relief, is Hong Kong’s entry in the 2017 Biennale art festival in Venice, Italy. This sculpture is the centerpiece of the Hong Kong pavilion.
VENUS DE MILO SPINNING THREAD
This Slate story, What Was the Venus de Milo Doing With Her Arms? by Virginia Postrel describes a fun project she hired me to work on–designing and 3D printing a restoration of Venus de Milo’s missing arms, showing her holding tools, spinning thread in the ancient technique.
LIFE-SIZE 3D PRINTED PORTRAIT
My client asked for a life-sized 3D printed portrait of his colleague, venture capitalist Brad Feld. Because the portrait was to be a surprise gift to Feld, there was no opportunity to scan the subject. The piece had to be modeled from photos of him culled from the web.
3D PRINTSHOW COLLECTION, LONDON/PARIS 2013
Sculptures I showed at the 2013 3D Printshows in London and Paris. Winged Victory, Venus de Milo, Caligula, and more.
RESPONSE TO VENUS DE MILO
While working on ideas and images for my presentation at LACMA, I made this comparison of people’s response to the original Venus de Milo in the Louvre to their response to my 3D captured, 3D printed copy at the 2013 Paris 3D Printshow. The show was in the Louvre expo space, so my print was just a couple hundred feet away from the original.
PERIKLES’ HELMET AT 2013 PARIS 3D PRINTSHOW
While working on ideas and images for my presentation to LACMA staff on 3D printing, 3D scanning, art, and museums, I gathered photos of people at the 2013 3D Printshow in Paris responding to my 3D printed invention of Perikles’ helmet—a copy of an artifact that hasn’t been discovered and likely does not exist. Photos and touching allowed…
3D PRINTED/BRONZE-CAST MATISSE BOOTLEG AT THE LOUVRE
Because when’s the next time I’m going to be alone, after hours at the Louvre, with Vangelisesque muzak playing on the PA system, with my 3D captured, 3D printed bronze-cast bootleg of a Matisse?
3D PRINTED PORTRAITURE: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
MakerBot Industries exhibited a collection of my 3D printed artwork in their exhibit at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. We have a common interest in demonstrating that with the right finishes and attention to detail, consumer-grade 3D printers can already produce objects of art worthy of public and private display—objects of desire that show that the 3D scanned and printed future is now.
METAL CASTING INTO 3D PRINTS
I’ve been experimenting with various metal casting techniques using 3D printing. Here I show how I cast low temperature Bismuth directly into a 3D printed ABS mold.
My Cosmonaut figure as Venus, on a Replicator, after Botticelli. Archetype meets Renaissance meets 1920s futurism meets bleeding-edge pop culture. She’s getting closer and closer to stepping out into the real world.
