Replicants, by Lorna Barnshaw
Replicants is a triptych of 3D Prints. Each print was created using a different app / software. I interferred with the software as little as posisble, comparing the digital attempts at replicating reality. The result is then 3D printed, bringing the digital simulacrums into the physical world.
“Ongoing exploration of derivatives of a 3D scan of Mickey Mouse, titled sekuMoi Mecy (a simple computer generated anagram).

Amazing 3D printed skull iphone cases by Hugo Arcier:
“I created these cases inspired by one of my artistic project called “Degeneration” (2007), based on a face reduction algorithm. They mix harmoniously a demanding and at the same time cool design.
You can customize them and add a sentence of your choice or directly order the case as is.
Print your own for iphone 5 or for iphone 4.”
