Description:


    On June 9th, 2014, we traveled to the State Dining Room of The White House to create a 3D Portrait of President Barack Obama using state-of-the-art 3D scanning and printing technology, producing the modern equivalent of the plaster life masks of President Lincoln from the 1860’s.
