NYC Artist Replicates His Entire Studio at 1/5 Miniature Scale, Using Putty & 3D-Printed Pieces #3DPrinting #ArtTuesday

Brian Caverly is an artist with a studio in the neighborhood of Ridgewood in the borough of Queens, NYC. Over several years he painstakingly re-created his entire studio – down to the tags adorning fire extinguishers and multiple, independent chains articulating his ‘Fahgettaboudit’ Kryptonite bike lock – at 1/5 scale, displayed inside a wooden shipping crate. The piece, titled Studio Abandon, is currently on view at the Queens Museum as part of their annual exhibition of Queens-based artists.

The scale is rendered at 1/5th and includes materials as diverse as photographs, foam core, acrylic & enamel paints, wood, sawdust, tape, clay, fiberglass insulation (in the walls?!?), epoxy, sculpting putty, plexi, metal, and even PLA 3D-printed parts – WOW!
