Royal Academy of Arts presents “The Veronica Scanner: Live 3D Portraiture”

The Royal Academy of Arts in partnership with Factum Foundation for Digital Technology in Conservation and the Rothschild Foundation will present The Veronica Scanner: Live 3D Portraiture to UK audiences for ten days only in London, from 2 – 11 September 2016, and Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire from 22 – 30 October 2016. During this experiment, visitors will not only be able to watch as members of the public are scanned, processed, printed and carved into three-dimensional portrait busts in real time, but they will also have the opportunity to book a place to have their own digital portrait scan taken by the innovative Veronica Scanner. From Pygmalion falling for his own sculpture in Greek mythology to the rise of photography in the nineteenth century as a new way to record facial features, visual art has always sought to reproduce a true likeness between image and form.
