MEDIA: digital 3D imaging, archival inkjet
print
YEAR:2013
 
Representative is an on-going series of narcissistic virtual portraits of me made by computer 3D software. While adopting the traditional format of frontal portrait painting and photography, I use 3D technologies that is not a conventional medium for the genre. The work explicitly references photorealistic 3D visual languages commonly used in mass-media and advertisement. Influenced by ubiquitous pop culture and modern media technologies under specific cultural contexts, I play with my identity by inserting the appearances of different sex, class, and race into my machine-made avatar. These juxtaposed portraits with different personas are all rooted from the same person, and express the idea of ubiquitous home.

MEDIA: digital 3D CG image, archival inkjet print
PROGRAMS: Autodesk MAYA, Zbrush, Photoshop
