Re-creating the Liberty Bell

There is no more important symbol of freedom in the United States than the Liberty Bell. In this detailed Vanity Fair article they explain how Direct Dimensions assisted the sculptor Jeff Koons to create this compelling replica. It took over 8 years and a large team to re-create a perfect copy of the imperfect original.

Structured light was used to obtain the 3D models. The ends to which Koons uses his many resources are not to increase the amount of works coming out of his studio, but to make his vision more exact. “It’s a moral commitment to the viewer,” Koons said, through his studio manager Gary McCraw.

It’s a great read.
