Replication of the self and engagement with liminal spaces has informed
our collaborative practice. 3D body scanning, processing and digital printing
proffered new methods of engagement as yet uncharted to capture ourselves faithfully. ( Test body scans suggested the
potential to reveal public and private aspects of ‘the self’ – representing both
the physiological and psychological aspects of a subject.
Digitised Doubles was a practice led enquiry funded by the Arts and
Humanities Research Council (UK). The aim of the investigation was to
examine how artists might creatively engage with the possibilities afforded
by advances in 3D scanning, 3D software applications and 3D rapid prototyping to achieve self-portrait exploring the poise and unique character of an
individual subject.
