this work reminds us of a similar approach by the japanese firm omote 3-D, that designboom covered in november last year.

















  • So, in the near future instead of family pictures our cabinets and desks will be populated by figurines of our beloved ones. Crazy idea!

    Airborne says:
  • I like it. I wonder how long it will be before we can do life-sized creations.
    That will be amazing and I cannot imagine that it will not happen.
