Merge Simpson, 2015
Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

SLS polyamide, resin, paint
41 x 22 x 55 cm
Edition of 3

 

For Hard Copy, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez produced four 3D prints of popular cultural icons, remixed and distorted in a computer modelling program, alongside the sculptures’ translations into .png image files. The polyamide figures suggest the strange futures of these familiar cartoons – whose images are reproduced widely on file-sharing sites – and stand as emblems for questions of copyright and participatory internet culture.  Merge Simpson turns the character’s signature features alien-like with protruding eyes, and extends her already sky-high hairdo to totemic proportions.
