3D-printed filigree brain cuff

Josh Harker's beautiful and bizarre "21st Century Self-Portrait" [via JWZ] defies easy explanation, so I'll just let him do it!

Based on a 3D scan of his face & CT scan of his skull, coupled with his filigree aesthetic the piece allows both forms to be viewed simultaneously juxtaposing the newfound reaches of our vision, discovery & technology against our vulnerability, privacy & humanity. The disembodied head suggests our increasing digital disconnect from the physical world & reexamination of reality. Exhibit debut at 3D Printshow New York, February 12th-15th.
