Artist Nathan Sharratt wants to cut your head off



Artist Nathan Sharratt is building a 3D-printed guillotine and would like for you to be a part of it. At least, he would like for a 3D-printed sculpture of your severed head to be a part of it.

You may have heard recently about 3D printing technology, which allows a computer to recreate a three dimensional object out of plastic resin with almost the same ease as printing a Microsoft Word document with an ink jet printer. That might sound quaint until you realize a 3D printer can make a gun as quickly and easily as it might make a toy for your kid.

The controversy surrounding this technology was not lost on Sharratt, who has decided to make a much more antiquated weapon, potentially for exhibition at the Zuckerman Museum of Art this winter. Watch the video above for more details about the project and how your head can be involved.
