Polymer shrine for gamers

Young on PCDaily

Inspired by scenes from the video game, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, this mostly polymer sculpture from Tucson’s Camille Young stands 5″ x 15″.

The piece, entitled Cross Section, was created for the Fangamer X Attract Mode show in Seattle. Video gamers love seeing their 2D characters brought to life in 3D by Camille and her sculpture represents a kind of modern shrine.

The Animal Crossing game allows players to build their own happy places and make the decisions that shape their lives.

These concepts may be completely foreign to us non-gamers but the audience for this artwork is huge and growing. Read about Camille in Polymer Clay Global Perspectives to get a glimpse of how and why this art is so important. She offers a 3D project for you to try.

Camille’s been sidetracked by her 6-month old daughter and it’s great to see her working (after Iris is in bed) again. Sample more of her work on Flickr and Facebook.

    Well – I don’t get the references but love it anyway! In fact I’m loving this whole week of shrines Cynthia. Tx

      Meella is an extraordinarily diverse talent– from her faux opal (some of the best I’ve ever seen) to her sculpted characters, she just seems to have a limitless range. And all this on top of being a new mom!

        What an amazing sculpture! I loved her feature in Polymer Clay Global Perspectives. I’m really excited to try her tutorial for Xmas gifts this year.

          This is incredible. AND a new baby. Very very impressive Camille!
