Chicago-based artist Joshua Harker utilized a 3D scan of his face and a CT scan of his skull to create an amazing 3D-printed sculptural self-portrait titled 21st Century Self-Portrait.
My work is about pushing the limits of form and dimensions to share vision… an exploration into what can be made and how to accomplish it in effort to tell a story or create an experience. I incorporate digital tools, software, and technology as well as traditional mediums to create art that is unique and engaging. Bolstered by the advent of organic modeling software, 3D printing technologies and material engineering, my visions are now able to be realized sculpturally in archival materials. Never before have forms of this organic complexity been able to be created. This boon of technology is a revolutionary time for the arts and one which will be boldly marked in history. I am honored to be considered one the pioneers in the medium.Joshua Harker
