Digital Fabrication for Sculptors (blog for class)

May 6, 2018

See below for Joe^2 (Joe-Joe). 

In Meshmixer I duplicated Joe and stuck the two skulls together to push the idea of playing with skulls in the name of art (where you don't have to be anatomically correct). 

I blackened the whole skull then brought back the gold color in...

Here's how my dolphin skull turned out: 

Cleaning up the project after the pour, I tried to emphasize the difference in surface textures. I darkened the cardboard and branches with the black shoe polish and lightened up the smoother areas.

Below you'll find a picture of my completed project. 
This is drastically different from my proposal. I started with the unique "zenpo-ko-enfu" shapes of Japanese tombs in the Kofun era, making them more angular, then repeating and combining multiple pieces in sketch f...

Meet Joe. 

Joe is my skull. I got him for sale--he was $10 at Blicks. Well, skulls don't come cheaper than that (maybe they do, I wouldn't really know).  

For my final project for Digital Fabrication for Sculptors, I am proposing a scan/print/mold/cast of Joe. My ar...

 Here I will explore the article "Interactions: Dialogues on Bodies, Protections, and Derivatives." Immediately starting this article I honed in on the idea and thought processes of an artist using material. (Perhaps because I'd spent the day at the iron pour---the dis...

 These sketches are rough ideas for my first assignment in Digital Fabrication for Sculptors. The sketches above are ideas I've developed from patterns I used to make (some examples can be seen in my Instagram feed). The bottom half of the page explains the layering I...

This weekend I visited the Museum of Fine Art in Boston. While I was there I came by Fernandez’s work in the contemporary wing. Her Ghost (Vines) is a large laser cut steel work that encases the viewer. The mirror quality of steel challenges the audience to look within...

For Project 3: Soft Sand Model and Cast Iron I would like to work with a scan of a fossil of a dolphin in the Smithsonian database. There are several reasons I would like to choose this particular scan. As a student intending on pursuing medical illustration, I have ha...

For the upcoming project using a 3D digital file I did an exploration of artists who use 3D printing technology in their practice. 

Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger are architects who use digital fabrication technology to construct an immersive space out of s...
