Xerox Samurai No.7 by The-BenT-One Xerox Samurai No.7 by The-BenT-One
Title - Xerox Samurai
Media - Industrial Cardboard and Garbage Bags
Time - 63 hrs
completed early November, 2009

This was the result of a project for my Intro to Sculpture class. The assignment was to take one material and use another to bind the first material together. One of the options was to make something that could be worn. I then proceeded to make a full scale replica of a suit of japanese samurai armor. I put in far more time than was necessary, but the result is as you see above.

This piece has been accepted to the Functional Art Show art the EckHaus Gallery in Kutztown, PA. [link]

I'm glad you like the armor! The secret is getting lots of references, taking measurements of your body and sticking to them when constructing the final piece, and the ability to be flexible with the design as your imagination comes up with new ideas on the fly. I chose Samurai Armor since it has more of a simple design than other types of armor in history. I'm actually still interested in making more pieces, possibly bases of Gladiator armor...
