21st Century Self-Portrait
Based on a 3D scan of his face & CT scan of his skull, coupled with his filigree aesthetic the piece allows both forms to be viewed simultaneously juxtaposing the newfound reaches of our vision, discovery & technology against our vulnerability, privacy & humanity. The disembodied head suggests our increasing digital disconnect from the physical world & reexamination of reality. Exhibit debut at 3D Print Show New York, February 12th-15th.
The Digital 3D Portrait Project:
Announcing Joshua’s custom portrait sculpture project, launching on the Uformit mass customization marketplace. An exploration into the latest technologies applied to one of the oldest themes in art… the portrait. Using his ”21st Century Self-Portrait” the Uformia software allows Joshua to swap face scans while accurately transferring the design. Ultimately the software, in concert with forensic facial reconstruction science, will also accurately morph the skull to match the new face… a 21st century portrait in every way. The custom portrait masks are now available here.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
