"I USED TO BE REAL," is my graduate sculpture thesis. My work focuses on digital art and how we fit within actual and virtual spaces.
What is this Project?
"I Used to Be Real" is a proposed art exhibition focusing on traditional and digital sculpture. As a student working towards my MFA, this exhibition acts as a final culmination of my art education. Using a variety of different media, my work navigates the space between the virtual and the physical world.
Originally trained in traditional sculpture techniques such as clay modeling and metal casting, I have expanded my collection of skills to include virtual art-making methods.
"I Used to Be Real" highlights the relationship between these techniques by combining physical three-dimensional sculpture with digital print and animation.
The money is for...
- Eps foam for CNC milling.
- Polycarbonate plastic material for 3D printing.
- Wood and drywall for gallery construction.
- Aqua resin for hard-coatings.
- Printing costs for anaglyph prints and Exhibition Catalogs.
- Purchase of 3 to 5 pico-projectors for use with animations.
- Miscellaneous materials such as paints, adhesives, etc.
What YOU get?
Unique 3D anaglyph prints! Each print comes with a pair of red/cyan 3D glasses that, when worn, produce the illusion of three dimensional space.
Also, larger donations receive a one of a kind rapid-prototype of my digital sculpture. Each polycarbonate plastic sculpture will be hand finished and painted.
A special thanks to...
