Dutch Artist Bert Simon Creates Hyper-Realistic Human Sculptures Using Paper
Combining his own creativity and digital techniques, the Design Academy of Eindhoven grad (from the ‘man and Living’ department) Bert Simon turns plain paper into life-like biodegradable sculptures.
Local fashion designer and friend, Rozemarijn Lucassen, was one of the first people chosen to be a ‘clone’. Simon first mapped her face using a sophisticated tracking technology and then fed the data into a computer. Then using specially developed software, he constructed the subject’s contours and printed a flattened 3D illustration on paper. The paper was then cut, folded and glued it into a 3D shape.
It takes Simon about three days to complete a paper figure.
