Joshua Harker has been a maker and artist his whole life. He has used 3D printing technology to create beautiful works of art. His 3D printed sculpture, Crania Anatomica Filigre and Anatomica di Revolutisare two of the most funded sculpture projects on Kickstarter.
Harker's recent piece is Quixotic Divinity Headdress created using 3D printing. The shape, detail, and complex stylings of this polyamide headdress shows how intricate an object today's printers are able to achieve.
Exploring the limits of the 3d printed medium & inspired by traditional Native American, Latin, African, & Asian headdresses & masks, this piece celebrates the symbolism & ceremony of human adornment. Revealing the wearer's identity, the face mask hangs in position as a floating bodice symbolizing the freedom of the spirit from the body.
The piece is 3D printed via the selective laser sintering process. It has nearly 200 hours of design time & was built by EOS on their largest format SLS printer in polyamide, filling its build envelope to full dimensional capacity.
