Sander created these Lilliputian figures by first recording her subjects in the round with sixteen digital cameras, then feeding the images into a machine designed for making models and prototypes. From this photographic matrix, the machine sprayed layers of plastic according to the shape of the person at 1:10 scale, which was then painted with an airbrush. The results are uncannily accurate portrayals of individual pose and gesture using the most modern of means-pocket doubles that refer obliquely to a possible future of clones and replicas.
