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 projected on them were a mixture of porn, nature, and abstracted spacescapes. The captured images were then manipulated further in PhotoShop. What started to appear, as I worked with my source materials, were creatures who definitely reminded me of the biomechanical style of H.R. Giger, who has been a big influence on me since the original Alien movie came out. So, it just seemed appropriate to give pay homage.
