UNTREATED BODIES
EXHIBITED AT THE THE GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART DEGREE SHOW
14—21 June 2014


'Untreated Bodies' is a hand-in-hand analogy between the digital process of 3D creation and the objectification of the women’s body in the digital realm, showing a visual and physical connection (both figurative and symbolical) of the damage that the digital causes to women and our perception, involving overall issues of the internet and propaganda. By 3D scanning a women’s body, its organic honesty teleports into the digital world. This visual transmutation makes the body to be digitally malleable, becoming an unprocessed geometrical entity. The digital body goes back again to the physical world when 3D printing it, eventually transforming it into an unrefined object that has changed its values, revealing its untreated qualities.



2 x (880x880 mm) digital prints, mounted on c-bond. The resulting images were scanned in depth by using Kinect sensor and detected through Skanect software. The scans were later edited in Blender and Photoshop / 2 x 3D models (approx. 25x30 cm) 3D printed on Ultimaker 2 at the MakLab studio in Glasgow and later spray-painted in red colour in order to enhance its unrefined beauty.
