KickStarter, the crowdsourced fundraising site continues to amaze us. As does this particular project, Crania Anatomica Filigre. As you can see, it's an extremely cool 3D print of a stylized skull by Chicago-based designer Joshua Harker.
Harker's fundraising goal was to collect USD$500 and get his work seen and touched by more people. It appears he made that goal: some 955 backers posted a mind blowing USD$77,271 for a variety of product combinations. At the USD$50 level and above you'd receive an actual sculpture. Of the 955 backers, it looks like Harker will be busy producing some 899 sculptures! As Harker says: "COMPLETE BITCHEN AWESOMENESS!"
We agree. But what does this mean? Some thoughts:
- People love skulls
- Joshua Harker is a kick-ass designer
- People are increasingly fascinated with 3D printed items
Probably #2 is the real answer. We can't wait to see his next project!
