Mike Pelletier: Lucy Skull
“In 2011 I was invited to create a piece for an exhibition called “Ctrl-Z” curated by 3d artist
Eric Van Straaten. This was a group exhibition of artworks created by various 3d printing processes. The model of the skull was generated from a friend’s dental tomography scan. The form of the object was created by creating an array of copies of the skull, where each successive copy of the skull is scaled, rotated, and moved. The skull starts at life size at the front and ends up rotated 180 degrees and two times larger than life at the back.”
"That is my principal objection to life, I think: It is too easy, when alive, to make perfectly horrible mistakes."
Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick
