What does it mean for the value of art when it is possible for anyone to make a perfect copy?
The recent recovery of works by Andy Warhol on Amiga disks, http://studioforcreativeinquiry.org/events/warhol-discovery, let us explore this idea. The screenshots of the 300X200 resolution images allows pixel perfect reproductions of the work.
I've appropriated a portion of one of the works to create a 3D printable sculpture of Andy Warhol's signature. Find more details here

Campbell's, 1985 by Andy Warhol found at http://studioforcreativeinquiry.org/events/warhol-discovery was used as a visual reference for this piece.
