Profilograph

In 1528 German artist Albrecht Dürer worked on ‘Four Books on Human Proportion’ as a study of male profiles. In 2008 artist Pablo Garcia picked the study up, transforming the illustrations into a bizarre device. With his so called ‘Philograph’ he found a method of tracing and extrusion through sequential profiles. The device transforms Dürer’s drawings into a contiguous 3D extrusion that rotates on a circular spindle causing a shadow that morphs between each profile.
