Art5 & Entert0000inment 66 FRIDAY, JANUARY 24- MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2014 Cape Gazette Visbal combines technology, aesthetics to create sculpture Lewes artist Kristen Visbal recently completed a mid-size rendition of the nautical work, "Goddess of The Sea." The sculp- ture, an eight-year collaboration for a public sculpture for Myrtle Beach, S.C., was originally the idea of South Carolina business- man Buz Plyler. Visbal submitted her winning design in 2005 and then began the long campaign to raise funds for the eventual bronze casting, which included the creation of Myrtle Beach's own 501c3 organization, The Myrtle Beach Downtown Public Art Initiative. The 6-foot-7-inch composition, to be enlarged to either 12 or 15 feet, depicts a mermaid and two dolphins amidst a swirl of water. The composition was designed for the Gay Dolphin Park, so named in the 1930s. The final enlarged work is to be unveiled i late summer 2014. Using a process called digital enlarge- ment, the mid-size form was enlarged from a 21-inch original model. This process, which origi- hated in Italy 16 years ago, uses a robotic arm to carve stiff blocks of plastic foam in the shape origi- nally created by the artist. The artist receives the form in blocks which must be assembled and the details and undercuts re- carved. Then clay is applied to the entire surface, and the detail is modeled back in. Typically, the digital enlarge- ment process requires that the smaller work be molded and a resin or wax cast be made from the mold. The wax or resin, a harder substance than clay, can be handled, in order to scan every inch of the surface into a computer. The level of detail wrought from the process is directly related to the robotic carving arm used and the cus- tomized program cultivated. The real benefit of digital en- largement is the elimination of human error and the accuracy at which it duplicates the art- ist's form without the use of Continued on page 67 A robotic arm carves styrofoam form using digital enlargement.
