Above that skin of ours
Above that Skin of Ours is a 3d projection-mapped installation created as a self-portrait of its authors (Sergio Mora-Diaz and Natalia Cabrera).
The piece combines physical and digital layers in order to study human skin and its different sizes, colors and shapes.
The project was highly influenced by each artists’ professional backgrounds, which are Architecture/Design on one side Filmmaking on the other. By combining fabrication elements and video content, we were able to give a new meaning to our initial ideas of creating our self-portraits.
The physical part of the project is composed of two sculptures made of laser cut paper, hanging from the room ceiling using thin cords. These models were developed using a DSLR camera and the softwares Agisoft Photoscan, Autodesk Meshmixer and Pepakura Designer. The digital part is a video projected over the paper surface. The video content was captured using a DSLR camera and projected using the software Isadora.
