This week's selection is Imprinted Bodies by NYC-based sculptor Lilia Ziamou. It's actually two pieces, #1 and #2. While the pieces are certainly not as dramatic as some by other artists, there is a story behind these unusual works.
Ziamou explores the "concept of the female body", using "curve and crevice". She initially develops the shapes in a traditional manner using stone, clay and plaster, but then uses 3D scanning to create a digital representation of the work.
Once in digital form, however, Ziamou reinterprets the sculptures using biometric data to "imprint" a new form. The result is printed on a ZCorp z650, creating the physical sculpture.
