3d art & Bosch

I've often thought of how 2d works of art could be brought into 3 dimensions. Many years ago I saw an exhibit at SFMOMA of a series of small figures, like children's action figures, that had been crafted by body scans of actual people. These scans were then turned into sculptures by a 3-dimensional printing technique, such as rapid protyping. Very interesting stuff, but I haven't heard a lot more about it since then.

Now it seems a company has taken it a step further. Talaria Enterprises, http://www.talariaenterprises.com/index.html, sells a variety of sculptures based on paintings. This is exactly what I've been looking for.

I'm a big fan of Bosch--his stuff is what my nightmares are made of. Now you too can get a figure directly from the Garden of Earthly Delights or another of Bosch's psychodelic 15th century musings.

I'd love to see them do this work Brueghel. Oy, to have a miniature set of the characters from The Triumph of Death! :)

    SO cool.

    Of course, now that you've posted about this, I'm totally going to have to buy one.

    Dude! I love these. I posted about these when they were being made on my personal journal. I love Bosch.

    I stopped in to tell you thanks for your post under the Woods post in response to all the inane ramblings of others. I'm getting increasingly fed up with trying to dig out good responses there and yours was a relief.

    I just noticed that you have a Nineteen-Eighty-Four reference in your next post. Gonna go read the rest of your blog. Thanks again. :)
