Phatima

A photo series of projections onto a model with Phatima Rude. I experimented with projecting images onto models who were painted silver. The subject of the images are varied and were chosen for various reasons: some were anatomy or images of other people; some were chosen for their visual / formal aspects; some were just random. The same technique is used in my Ode to Giger.

One idea behind this particular incarnation of my body painting series is transformation. Another idea is that we are always projecting onto other people various ideas or concepts about them or ourselves. Transformation and projection are things that we engage in all the time as we interact with the world around us. Projectors and body paint allows us to create new and otherworldly transformations.
