On the Shoulders of Giants is a project that focusses on the statues and monuments in public area’s in Antwerp.

I scanned the statues and monuments with a 3d scanner and, by creating an archive of these scans, determine the ‘average’ statue of Antwerp. All the scans of the statues are divided in 6 different categories. These scans enabled the possibility to ‘fold and merge’ different scans together and make one and the same monument from the combined scans.

This eventually resulted in seven 3d printed sculptures, one for each category, and one print of all categories together: the average statue of Antwerp. This installation was shown Brussels, Leuven and Antwerp.
