Dmitry Zakharov es un artista ruso afincado en Colonia (Alemania) desde donde ha realizado una de sus más impresionantes obras: INSIDE ME, el cuerpo desde dentro y desde otra perspectiva. Mezclando el videoarte más digital con el minimalismo más fino consigue piezas tan hipnóticas como esta.
“This project is based on a 3D-scan technique, which allows me to reproduce an image of my own body as a 3D object in a software. It is possible to view this object not just from outside, but also from the inside as a negative as well, which creates abstract shapes.
The coloration was generated with the help of colour data I took from a real picture.
The film reflects the invisible inner world of an individual, which owns a small universe in itself, created by experiences and feelings – as well in the digital world as in real life. We try to express ourselves and approach our world another being, but still, nobody can see in our souls entirely.
For me, the process of scanning is a very important part of this work itself.
The idea of digitising a body and hence the creation and deformation of its computer generated self, reflects the digital world we live in today. We create an alternative world, in which everybody can be what they want to be. In some way, it resembles to an act of creation.
We never stop building more worlds for ourselves, even though there are already various ones encircling us, that we don’t even understand yet.
Each universe encloses another, which creates a new one, and the world next to us still seems far away. And so we look into infinity again, which inevitably surrounds us.”
Visual artist Dmitry Zakharov‘s latest video experiment turns a scan of his body into an animated surge of swirling colors. Based on a 3D-scan technique that allows him to reproduce an image of his body as a 3D object in software,Inside Me (Nils Frahm – Me Rework) is a project that highlights how imaging technology can warp the body into something something totally unrecognizable, not unlike a digital black hole.
