The Great Fredini has created a 3D printed model of Coney Island’s historic Luna Park.  This first came to my attention in 2013 through his Kickstarter campaign to fund the project  – and scan supporters to populate Luna Park.

Since I was deep into using 3D printing for my Ascent Project I was fascinated and wanted to support it and be scanned.  Lisa and I visited The Great Fredini at his Manhattan scanning studio and had a great time with him.  He made 3 scans of Lisa and I together.  Fred created his own “Scan-a-Rama” scanning system and a great workflow to be able to scan lots of people fairly quickly

The artist’s reception for the show of his Luna Park is Sunday July 6th 2014 from 2-6pm at The Coney Island Museum 108 Surf Avenue in Coney Island (duh!)  We plan to be there live and in 3D.
