Cool Hunting Video: Barry X Ball

Using tools of the digital revolution, the artist recreates and re-imagines Renaissance era masterpieces

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 15 May 2014

In an unassuming residential building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, lies the studio space of sculptor Barry X Ball. His stunning re-imagined and modified versions of Renaissance era masterpieces begin with meticulous 3D-scanning. Ball and his team then digitally sculpt the scans into incredibly detailed files, which are then 3D-printed from stone before being finished by hand. The artist spoke with us about his fascinating process, digital innovation and how he wants each piece he creates to be magic.
