3D Art and the Participation Economy
It took more than two years for Michelangelo to carve his famed David, but now you can have a mini-masterpiece of your own in a matter of moments. A group called blablabLAB has created a small kiosk in the heart of Barcelonaâ€™s La Rambla pedestrian mall where, if you will just stand still briefly, a machine will complete a 3D scan of your whole body before producing a statuette replica of your chosen pose. Cleverly, the whole thing isnâ€™t just fun â€“ in the instant that you pose for your scan, and afterwards when your statue is complete, it makes you part of La Rambla by transforming you into one of the many human statues that line the mall. Participation. A magic moment. A lasting memory. A keepsake you canâ€™t help but love. Brilliant.
