    So many people say “oh, that is awesome” and
    really don’t have a clue what the word “awesome” is supposed to connote.

    This endeavor by this person is indeed:


    I’m sending this link to Boeing.

    This is technically incredibly impressive…but it’s model-building. Even with the tricky medium, it’s not “art.” It’s entirely his prerogative to make, but as an art STUDENT, he should be spending his time learning and creating, not replicating.

    @Robert, a huge part of art school is learning how to work with materials and tools to understand their capabilities and limitations and how to manipulate them. This project is about pushing the materials, the tools, and the artist to their limits, and engaging in the intensive repetition the shear number of details demands. This is how a student of art internalizes the skills he needs to succeed as an artist. The fact that this project replicates–rather than invents–something is part of its instructiveness. It’s immediately clear how well the material and construction meets the goal, because the behavior of the model can be compared readily to a well-known original. Art schools can’t teach creativity. This is what they teach.
