Bert Simons amazes us with his very life like paper sculptures of himself and other lucky candidates. This Rotterdam, Netherlands native seems to have quite a hand at 3D imaging and rendering. The sculptures he creates could almost be the real clones of the people they represent.

This seems to be an interesting facet of art imitating life. While some of you video gamers have probably created characters with your picture applied to them, this process seems to work in reverse. Rather than creating art in the real world and bringing it to life on a computer Simons’ process works the other way around.


“Some time ago I had a midlife crisis,” says Simons “and was thinking a lot about the purpose of my life, things that will remain and stuff like that…instead of indulging myself into depression I desperately started looking for a solution and I came up with this idea..I decided to clone myself..more me’s have more chances..”.
