Liberty, 2018
In collaboration with Joshua Hughes.
3D Printed statues from Public Domain 3D model rendering of the Statue of Liberty. The US Postal Service made a stamp of the Statue of Liberty without realizing
the photo was of the Las Vegas replica of the Statue of Liberty, and not the NY original, and thus lost a $3.5 million copyright judgement suit brought by the artist
who made the replica.
