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.
The Digital 3D Portrait Project: Announcing Joshua’s custom portrait sculpture project with Uformit. 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.
