Modern artist uses 3D scanning for art experiment

The artist Gudrun Steen-Andersen is a figurative sculptress. Her sculptures range fom realistic representations to the more abstract

Gudrun Steen-Andersen wanted to 3D scan her sculpture Satellite to get an exact digital model for an artistic experiment.

Besides enlarging the Satellite sculpture on the basis of the scanned 3D data, Gudrun Steen-Andersen wished to experiment by adding different surfaces on the scanning, using the 3D software Rhino. In these experiments, she tried to explore different artistic expressions by adding a fine and large stitched surface structure, respectively. The surface structure added on the scanning was inspired by a coral.

”This experiment is a dream come true for me, as it opens up for a whole new way of working. A way that gives me infinite possibilities of expression, and I'm sure that this is only the beginning,” says Gudrun Steen-Andersen about her work. 

The original sculpture is made in bronze, but it is not yet decided what material the final sculpure is to be made in, when the experimental work is over.

3D scanning

3D scanning is a technology, which can create a digital 3D model of a physical part. The technology is primarily used for reverse engineering or quality control and part measurement.
