PhotoMortifications, 2007-2009
3D Computer Model and Photography


Photo-mortifications are a series of photographs into which computer models of 3D digital sculptures have been integrated. In the Mortifications series, a realistic nude is mathematically mutilated, and subjected to irregular, apparently organic deformations. By juxtaposing organic forms that evoke rotting and decay with the rational permutations of computer-generated imagery, Mortifications propose a digital Baroque. Photo-mortifications integrate expressive sculptures into photos of hyper modernist buildings and museums of science and natural history. The contrast between the two conveys the denial of the human (in a vacuity without pathos and emotion) by the oppressive anonymity of bureaucratic techno-culture.
