A state of flux
Sophie Kahn's "Dominick" sculpture, featured at the 3D Print Show, derived from using a cinema-quality laser scanner and 3D imaging software to create a unique characterization of a human face in motion.
"The precisely engineered scanning technology I use was never designed to represent the body, which is always in flux," Kahn notes on her Web site. "Confronted with motion, the software receives conflicting spatial coordinates, and generates a fragmented model. This model is then edited -- virtually 'sculpted' -- using 3D editing software." Read more about the methods and materials she uses for the 3D printing process.
