Re: 3 d sculptures

That's certainly one way to go about making sculpture that utilizes this technology, but it's not the only "valid" workflow. Lifecasting is a technique that can result in good art, even if the results aren't altered by the artist. It's like photography - the artist chooses a subject, poses it, uses a process to fix it in tangible form, and stages it for presentation. Each step is susceptible to the input of creativity. George Segal's work is an example of how it can result in fine art, although I'll admit that there's also a lot of crappy lifecasting that doesn't rise to any particular artistic heights. But that's true of any art technique - all these methods enable good art, but don't ensure it.
