Gallery: Dutch Artist Bert Simon Creates Hyper-Realistic Human Sculptur...

He first maps his subjects' faces using sophisticated tracking technology and feeds the data into a computer.

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.
