Dio, an AI Sculpture

“After Snell finished creating the 3D model, he disassembled the computer he made it on and ground it to dust using a specially-designed sealed box. This included the computer’s enclosure, its hard drive, its RAM and its graphics processing unit. He then 3D-printed a mold of Dio and cast the sculpture into this mold using resin and the ground remains of the computer.”

Scripted sculpture. 50 x 90 x 192 cm

“Beam me up, Mike! is a reorganized voxels of The statue of David by Michelangelo. By means of scripted modeling, the sculpture is voxelized in total 8 steps of refining cubes. The size of voxel cubes starts from 120mm of edge length and scales down to half each step. The top part (head of the statue) is in original shape as it represents ultimately refined voxels.”
