Photo-based Sculpture, Made with 3D Imaging Technology

3D scans are generated from still photographs. After editing the file, it is fabricated with a CNC (computer-controlled) router or 3D printing. See a video of the process of the making of a sculpture of a rock formation photographed in Antarctica.

Baltimore Ecosystem Study

Printed on Somerset Velvet paper, all are available in
editions of 5 (dimensions of 40 inches and above) or 10 (up to 24 inches). The etching-like prints were created by hand-coloring photographic images with a graphics tablet in Photoshop. They were inspired by Piranesi's famous Vedute di Roma, 18th-century etchings documenting overgrown Roman ruins.
