Crania Anatomica Filigre

The little filigree 3d printed skull that became the #1 most funded Sculpture project in Kickstarter history & an icon of the 3D printed medium.  The piece marks the 1st application of Joshua’s surrealist automatism technique to representational form. It gives a new identity to the shape & invites the viewer to discover the form through the gentle visual lead of the pattern.  This has been an exploration in how 2D images & designs can change the interpretation of 3D form & geometry.  Representing the passing of an era & the ever growing renewal over the ghost of the past, the skull symbolized the end of Joshua’s commitment to traditional means of making & selling art while the filigree pattern represents the creative exploration of a new medium & ways to share his work… available here
