California based artist Cosmo Wenman will exhibit a collection of his 3D printed artwork: "3D Printed Portraiture: Past, Present, and Future" at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, as part of Makerbot's exhibit. Last year Cosmo Wenman scanned an ancient marble sculpture "Head of a horse of Selene from the east pediment of the Parthenon" (Acropolis, Athens, 438-432 BC) in the British Museum and then modeled and printed out on a Makerbot Replicator 3D printer.

We have a common interest in demonstrating that with the right finishes and attention to detail, consumer-grade 3D printers can already produce objects of art worthy of public and private display—objects of desire that show that the 3D scanned and printed future is now.

I am also interested in promoting interest in museums and art collectors publishing 3D scans of their collections, setting the world's backlog of three dimensional art free into the digital commons.

With my collection for CES, I've attempted to merge those themes with another. I have chosen a theme of "3D Printed Portaiture: Past, Present, and Future" in an effort to convey a sense of the weird mix of technology, futurism, timelessness, and anachronicity I see surrounding the young 3D scanning and printing industry, and to point out the bright, burning hunks of science fiction streaking across the sky, just starting to hit the Earth.

The prints I've made cover a span of at least 1.7 million years of human(oid) history—aeons more if you count the promise of unlimited remix, adaptation, copying, and originality 3D scanning and printing are opening up for us right now.
