Further work on the mixed body volumes by adding some new body scans I made. This time the scans was even more distorted than other times, but it kind of added a nice “melting” feeling to the artwork.
I have been experimenting again with light and colours, on another photo texture, this time from the ground of Kolonos hill in Athens. This picture was taken there a couple of years ago.
I find interesting the parallel drawn between the human skin/flesh and the ground image as the “skin” of the place.
“…In a geological event of a mountain reformation, memory of unknown events is being concentrated, events that occur in the dark interior of the earth underneath our feet. Respectively, in an “urban” event of a material reformation of an urban phenomenon, memory is once again being concentrated, memory of both known and unknown events that take place in the space of the city itself…”
