When we scan people in 3D, the end product is usually a 3D print, but it is sometimes nice to play with colours, textures and renders to see what sort of artistic effects we can get digitally.
We scanned Roo in a series of outfits and poses so that we could experiment with the files, and one of the outcomes is shown here. The render of the 3D file gives a highly glazed ceramic effect which reminded us of some of the kitsch models produced by Jeff Koons, including his famous piece ‘Michael Jackson and Bubbles’ from the late 1980s.
We are currently working with contemporary artists and photographers who are interested in the new techniques available to 3D and hope to show more examples of this type of work in the future.
We will upload a 3D rotatable model of Roo soon.
