Bert Simons is a Netherlands-based Designer/Programmer who has created some very unusual sculptures. Using a 3d modeling program he maps portraits of people, including himself as pictured above of over a wireframe model. He then breaks the image down into a series of geometric shapes and outputs the pieces. He cuts them apart and then after what I could only imagine would be a lengthy and trying bit of time manages to glue them together to create the striking papercraft sculptures above. Yes, that’s right they are made out of paper. Ah will the wonders of technology never cease. So bizarre but utterly fascinating, if not the least little bit disturbing.
