Profilograph (after Dürer) by Pablo Garcia

Pablo Garcia : Studies in male profiles, from Albrecht Dürer’s Vier Bücher von Menschlicher Proportion

(Four Books on Human Proportion) (1528), transformed by what I call PROFILOGRAPHY

—a method of tracing and extrusion through sequential profiles. The machine is made from

3D printed shells, mounted to laser-cut aluminum structure, rotating on a motorized spindle.

First made in 2008 for exhibition at the University of Michigan.
