Ambitious work-in-progress from Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand:
When finished every part of the 1969 Mustang coupe that i restored and sold to purchase a diamond engagement ring will be recreated out of paper in 1:1 scale. This is a continuation of the diamond series and an earlier show titled “one for another.” It is made entirely of archival inkjet prints on paper. The process began with creating a 3D computer replica which is then unfolded flat and printed on an inkjet printer. Each piece is then cut out and glued together to form a 3D replica of the original.
So far, it would appear, he’s only finished the motor and one wheel. But even by themselves, those are impressively detailed models. Can’t wait to see it when it’s done! [via Boing Boing]
