Fear Itself - Ear Art Project
Artist's Statement: 

Anxiety is not understood by people who do not experience it. They don't know that it can be sneaky, bloodthirsty, and completely overwhelming.
I made a model out of styrofoam, and then I 3d scanned it. Anxiety was even more terrifying in the 3d scanning software.
The very first print after 3D scanning my foam model. As one can see, the foam model did a reasonable approximation of the shape behind my ear, but the fit was not close enough to hug my ear and hold itself up.
The display in the Stubbins Art Gallery as of mid-February.
I printed my face. Nothing weird going on here.
How do people look when they are yelling? Sometimes the easiest way to tell is to take pictures of yourself yelling awkwardly in the guest bathroom. I used a series of more embarrassing shots as inspiration for Anxiety's mouth.
To make ear art, you've got to have a platform to build from. The first thing that I did was take the scan from the eFit and print it in the Invention Studio.
The final FDM model, printed, painted and fit against the 3D scan of my head.
