video installation / 3 minute loop / 2007

One of a series of self-portraits that are the product of preparing a model of myself for insertion into a 3D, first-person shooter video game. This video is a rendering of the 3D geometry of my head with facial texture images mapped onto it. The video is projected onto a hanging screen constructed of thin plastic which allows viewing from both sides.
