Artwork by Alan Warburton recreates the familiar 3D test model ‘Stanford Bunny’ using dust collected in visual effect computing workstations:
Dust Bunny is comprised of finely milled
angora-like dust harvested from the inside of ten 3D animation
workstations at visual effects studio Mainframe.
The volume of dust here represents an estimated 35,000 hours, or 4
years, of constant rendering and processing. The sculpture meticulously
renders in this industrial by-product the Stanford Bunny, the richly historic 3D test object introduced in early computer graphics experiments at Stanford University and still routinely used to demonstrate new advances in CGI.
