The Art of Lifecasting
Lifecasting is the process of creating an exact replica of a body or part that a person wishes to remember forever. I came across the notion yesterday while talking to a friend about full body casting. This area of sculpture is truly a human-centered division because the primary motif behind the work is the client himself/herself. We are not dealing with an outside interpretation of somebody, this process moulds a dimensional copy in near-complete accuracy. Unlike abstract sculpture or other forms of expressive art, lifecasting is a more proportionate way to create a remembrance of who we are as individuals. It can serve as a comparable landmark in our own history and become a peg for us to grow and develop into better human beings.
