Face Cloning for WIRED Magazine by Thomas James


“For a WIRED magazine article about something called ‘face cloning’, which involves enhancing the realism of animatronic characters by combining motion capture technology with 3D printing. I was encouraged to take a unique approach to the term ‘face cloning’ itself, rather than the definition, and I really liked the idea of playing off the familiar imagery of sheep cloning, with a cloned human face showing up in the folds of the wool.” – Thomas James
