Baseera Khan’s recent piece, The Protector, from a series called Bust of Canons was scanned, designed and printed with us, here at iMakr Studios. This piece was prominently displayed at a solo booth at Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland, as part of the Statements section. Baseera's choice to incorporate 3D scanning, design, and printing techniques into her work adds a unique dimension to her artistic expression.

Incorporating 3D scanning, design, and printing into Baseera's approach involves scanning her form with antiquities attached, particularly focusing on deities of feminine power and bringing these objects into the here and now. By contextualizing these objects within the contemporary world, The Protector examines the intersection of history, power dynamics, and personal identity.

She acknowledges that achieving the desired print quality can be challenging, as even the slightest imperfections or scratches can evoke new conceptual ideas within artistic pieces. The journey of the 3D process required patience and dedication to allow the technology to work seamlessly with the artistic vision.
