Cosmo Wenman Art Work @ CES: 3D Printed Portraiture: Past, Present, and Future

CES this year is shaping out to be a very interesting place for 3D Printing this year with a number of hardware, software, and otherwise tech demos thanks to the role of CES in launching 3D printers in the public eye last year. Here is a fascinating project by the artist Cosmo Wenman that looks to be part of the MakerBot Booth this year. No confirm on how it will be staged, but this is a fascinating project! You might recognize him from his “Through a Scanner Getty” project last year.

From his artist statement about this project issued today:

I am grateful to MakerBot Industries for the opportunity to exhibit 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.

I am also interested in promoting interest in museums and art collectors publishing 3D scans of their collections, setting the world’s backlog of three dimensional art free into the digital commons. (You can read more about that here, here, and here.)

With my collection for CES, I’ve attempted to merge those themes with another. I have chosen a theme of “3D Printed Portaiture: Past, Present, and Future” in an effort to convey a sense of the weird mix of technology, futurism, timelessness, and anachronicity I see surrounding the young 3D scanning and printing industry, and to point out the bright, burning hunks of science fiction streaking across the sky, just starting to hit the Earth.

The prints I’ve made cover a span of at least 1.7 million years of human(oid) history—aeons more if you count the promise of unlimited remix, adaptation, copying, and originality 3D scanning and printing are opening up for us right now.
