3D models and AR works
With her series of 3D-scan selfies ‘Untouched’, Martina Menegon engages in an intimate process with her physical body, where she extends its reality to the digital sphere. Her poses translate into virtual sculptures whose glitches and flaws reveal the data lost as she records her body in movement. Despite their partiality and abstraction, these digital renditions of herself retain authenticity. They show her physical body « as is » without any retouching and change its context from a personal setting IRL to other virtual ones.
‘Untouched’ holds a performative nature and allows the artist to connect with her physical body at fixed times. The performative aspect of the work also extends to viewers whom the artist invites to manipulate the virtual sculptures through augmented reality.
