Classical sculpture and its evolution were the point of departure for creating the Hard Copy collection. Classical Greek sculpture once represented an ideal of beauty. It was copied and reproduced many times throughout history until it became an empty repetition of style and expression.
We live in a culture where everything is replicated, so what is the value of an original object?
Defective digital images were deliberately created with a 3D software. Deformed objects that were created by a command that the software is not able to execute. These objects cannot be printed, nor produced in reality.
They exist only in the virtual space.
The tension between the real and the virtual, between 2D and 3D were the inspiration behind the collection. Most textiles were developed especially for the collection. The 3D-printed pieces were created in collaboration with Stratasys.
