Display at Your Own Risk by Owen Mundy
I get a lot of press for my artwork. These articles often gloss over the nuances, distilling the essence of a story.
Well-written academic articles about my artwork is what thrills me the most.
Such is the case, with Owen Mundy’s article, Display at Your Own Risk, which looks at 3D printing, copyright and photogrammetry in art.
The work, he is referring to, in our case is Chess with Mustaches, which is detailed here.
What Mundy hones in on is that our original Duchamp Chess set is not like ‘ripping’ music from physical media to a computer, but rather a “hand” tracing from a set of photographs to create a 3D model. It is essentially a translation rather than a crude copy.
These are the sorts of comparisons and nuances that garner my appreciation.
