Self Portrait Number Two       

Digital fine art print, 2019

For the artwork I used a 3D-scanner to capture my own body in three dimensions. The data from that process is merely a point cloud with a lot of missing parts, where the scanner did not reach – the so called shadows. The imperfections of the scanner were the starting point for an exploration into body horror and mental health. Due to personal experiences I was interested in anxiety disorder and hypochondria. The media of 3D-scanning is a versatile tool for exploring the idea of a pathological body. Whereas the digital scan is a broken image of a three dimensional body, mental illness is a projection of the inner space onto the body – similarly damaged and causing psychosomatic distress.
