Sculptor Joshua Harker hit a home run with his first Kickstarter project, Crania Anatomica Filigre: Me to You, which he claims is now the site’s most-funded sculpture project. The filigreed, 3D printed skull was admittedly not without its charms. Now he’s following that up with a more ambitious project, Anatomica di Revolutis, which Harker tells us means ‘anatomy of the revolution.’ In this work a newly-designed skull takes center stage, surrounded by phoenix wings and a dangling ‘crooked cairn.’ Nifty enough but what makes the project even more interesting is that these three components are available separately via a range of Kickstarter pledges, as well as related items, such as a skull chain, origami and papercraft skull puzzles, t-shirts and even an iPhone case. With a modest goal of $500, Harker seems to have done it again by amassing almost $30,000 in pledges to date.
