Design of the Week: Wit’s End

By on November 25th, 2013 in Design


This week’s selection is Ravi Venkataraman’s Wit’s End, which as you can see above, captures that feeling quite distinctly. 
It’s part of Venkataraman’s “Emotions in 3D” series, where a variety of emotions, from profound to fun are explored in 3D sculptures. We’ve seen several of these works but this one somehow resonates the best; perhaps because of our state of mind today.
The piece was made by IvarFace, using a “state of the art 3D scanner” that is capable of capturing a 180 degree scan of a face within 4 seconds. 
Venkataraman says: 
It reflects the anguish resulting from being “at your wit’s end”, when circumstances are completely out of your control. The subtle anguished expression, along with the hand on the head conveys a powerful emotion. 
Indeed. We feel like this all the time. Don’t you?
