K-2SO & Iron Man Life-Size Paper Sculptures
We were approached by the organisers of the Silicon Valley Comic Con to create a life-size paper sculpture of Iron Man for their first event at the 30,000 capacity San Jose Convention Centre. Following the success of this event we were asked back the following year to create a life-size paper sculpture of the might K-2SO from Star Wars Rogue One.
For both projects I brought in my regular collaborator Thomas Forsyth to take charge of production duties, and together we devised an inner foamboard framework on which we then built the paper shell. Tom also helped to bring the model to life by rigging up some LEDs in the eyes and chest of the Iron Man. For K-2SO he took things even further, designing a 3D printed head mechanism linked up to arduinos which he made move using custom code.
We built the model in separate parts at my studio over a four week period and then shipped the individual components out to San Jose where we pieced the model together live at the show over the course of the three day event.
