Art History X(rays), 2010-2011

3D scanning allowed me to fulfill one of my dream as a plastic artist : x-raying art history.
In the field of medicinal imagery, scanography is to radiography what digital technology is to silver photography. Once scanned in 3D, the subject's anatomy can be rebuilt at will through computer processing, with endless rendition possibilities thanks to the editing tools available on broadcasting hardware.
3D scanning offers a remarkable digital stripping while exposing a mapped anatomy or grated anthropometrics thus exempting us subtly from post-mortem examination.

Riding with death (after Basquiat), 2011
In order to revisit 'Riding with death' I chose to use scanners from a Paris health clinic's patients. Swimming around in that data pool, I strangely felt like doing anamotical voyeurism with all those 3D-rebuilt privacies in sight. Uncovering layer after layer these unknown persons' skins, I sinfully felt like performing digital dissections.

Pixel rules #2, unlawful self-portrait
In Pixel rules #2 : self-portrait by breaking in, the background's pixelisation, because of a strong zoom-in, tells the 2.0 origin of the picture stolen from Google. It also takes a modern look back at the photographic soft focus of Richter's paintings. In order to endorse and sign up Richter's paintings' thieving seizure I put right at his Schädel a scanning of my own skull thus symbolizing anthropometrics.
