Postdigital – Richard Dupont

Richard Dupont’s trippy life-size sculpture of himself. Back in 2001, the artist scanned his entire body and has since been manipulating that digital data to create physical sculptures. Dupont’s piece is a perfect example of the melding of digital and craftsman methods of creation—using digital data, Dupont was able to mill the wavy form of his body, which he then created a mold of and cast in polyurethane.
