About Caspar Berger Skeleton
For his project Skeleton, Dutch sculptor Caspar Berger has used the very latest unique technology to reveal the invisible.
He had his body scanned in one of the world’s most advanced CT scanners.
Using a 3D printer he was then able to produce precise reproductions of parts of his skeleton.
Our bones go on to reveal who we were long after we are gone.
With a scan, 3D prints and casts of his entire skeleton, Berger aims to make the invisible tangible in three dimensions, and thus hold in his hands the symbol of what remains of us after death.
Berger is now presenting two ultimate self-portraits combined with Augmented reality:
Vita Subsidiaria Calva/Self-portrait 31 and Vita Subsidiaria Humerus/Self-portrait 31
This artwork is about the question of whether we can rethink life, faced with the possibility of science cracking the code of life, of being able to make and fix life.
If we were offered the choice, would we dare to be immortal?
