I’ve been getting prices for the 3D printing of my models’ torsos. Due to globalisation, I can get prices from as far away as Morocco and Jordan. I’ve also sought prices from printers local to me. But many printers, including those in my area, are hobbyists, with 3D printers that are too small for this project. 3D printing is still largely a cottage industry. There are a few major businesses, however. These guys are used… Read More »The cost of 3D printing
This project is about dead people. It seems strange that people who were once so loved and admired, and who were busy and had an impact on others lives – for example bringing up children – they are so quickly forgotten. So this project involves the photo albums of those people. I remove the images, or buy albums where the photos have been removed, and put them in frames. All that’s left are captions… Read More »Dead people
In this video I’ve completed the scans. The life models were used to taking their clothes off, but none had done that in a warehouse and had their parts inspected from a distance of 60cm. As professionals they were interested in the process. As a first timer, I was trying not to look like an amateur. By the end I was getting used to it, calling on them to put more tension in their… Read More »The scans are done. I’m feeling happier.
In the video below I talk about gathering a bunch of male life models and photographing their private parts in a shed on an industrial park. You may be able to see the slight anxiety in the voice. It’s not something I felt comfortable about.
Tomorrow I go to scan men’s private bits. It feels transgressive. The point is, women’s bits are routinely on display, especially in films. Whereas men’s parts are coyly hidden away. So I have lined up three men (life models, as they are known to people who drawing) to have a 3D scan from navel to upper thigh. The images will then be turned into sculpture. The image on the right was what I sent to… Read More »Naked men tomorrow
