Skin Deep

Alon Chitayat, Rosalie Yu

Visitors are invited to collaborate by painting our skin texture for our 3D self portrait.


Skin Deep is a series of collaborative self-portraits that treats the body as a canvas for 3D drawing. It is an exploration of a new kind of drawing format, where the artists are 3D-scanned, producing a mesh of their bodies and texture maps of their skin from all angles. The viewers are invited to color the textures on paper which are then reassembled and projected live onto the 3D meshes, creating a final composition defined by both the observer and the artists.
