Venus and me, 2018

The first time I stepped onto a small stage inside a photogrammetry rig and found myself encircled by digital cameras stacked on poles from floor to ceiling to create a 3D digital file of myself, I felt as if the entire surface of my body was being both inspected and dissected, later to be stitched together into some semblance of digital wholeness. The process seemed so much about exteriority and surface that afterward, I spent some time comparing those ghost images of myself with self-portraits that revealed the flesh and also inverted images of those self-portraits that suggested x-rays or interiority. These images are a product of that thinking.
