One Piece at a Time [Objects, Scripts]

One Piece at a Time by Jonathan Brand is a 3D paper version of a 1969 Ford Mustang. Stuck for cash, Jonathan had to sell his Mustang to buy a diamond engagement ring. The sculpture is almost as complete as the original including the body and interior. The details of the car are based more on his memory and a few photographs.

This work begins as 3D drawings on a computer.  I utilize a large format printer to translate the digital into the real world as a flat inkjet print. I then cut, fold and glue these numbered and labeled shapes together much like a complicated three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle.

I no longer have access to the original car and chose not to use a surrogate to measure and get all the details correct. I like when things are slightly off, in the wrong place or missing, just like my memories of the original.
