Digital model of the first relief panel for The Sacred Congress, a work in progress. H:40.5″ W:72.” 2014-15.
Based on medieval Christian reliquaries, this large-scale mixed media sculpture will consists of twelve relief panels inset in a ~7 by 6 by 4 foot tiled structure. The panels, sculpted in Zbrush, will be CNC routed from 2.5 inch thick MDF at FAR’s Materials Processing Lab, sealed, and gold leafed. The tiles will be 3d printed in ceramic, glazed, and fired to 1940°F. Webcams concealed in the structure will transmit video of viewers to a website, accessible through a QR code that also serves as one of the tile patterns.
