Digital sculpture – Death skull – Bubblewrap – a contemporary vanitas
Bert is a talented artist. He has also an extremely good skill set with 3D modelling software. This particular item wasn’t actually modelled by Bert however. It is a 3D scan of a real human skull and jaw, complete with teeth. Bert has transformed the model though into a contemporary vanitas.
The skull has been rendered in advanced computer software to have the appearance of a surface of bubblewrap which has then been assigned a psychedelic range of colours. It is difficult to imagine a more contemporary vanitas than that! Below the skull is the word ‘Death” emblazoned in bright green letters.
