Ode to Giger

This collection of work evolved out of an experiment I wanted to do. I saw a video of projection mapping techniques onto human faces and wanted to try it out for myself. I enlisted a few different models, selected some images, set up my projector and started shooting.

I painted the models silver to increase the reflective quality of their skin and to give an extra layer of texture to it as well. The images that started to appear as I worked with my source materials were definitely in the biomechanical style of H.R. Giger, who has been a big influence on me since the original Alien movie came out.

Humankind makes tools and technologies that are extensions of, and enhancements to, our natural abilities. As we continue to create, develop, and build new technologies, we will continue to incorporate them into our daily lives, routines, and physical beings.
