Prototypes for Topologies, Digital c-print on satin, cotton insert with polyester filling, 36” x 36” x 4”
The prototypes for Topologies were first conceived as large-scale composite images. Photographs of human skin from various subjects were taken using a large format camera. These skin samples were digitally "woven" together and digitally printed onto fabric. Part photographic sculpture, part seating, the hyper realistic surfaces and texture of the cushions intend to blur the space between self and other to explore the politics of colorism, the formation of identity, and the designation of territories.
