PORTRAIT 360° Karl, Gianluca Traina, 2015, 120 x 40 x 40 cm, Paper and PVC

Portrait 360°


Portraits are 360° degrees views of humans social. Humans that share their own face, face that in Portrait360° is conceived with an unusual rotation of the face

Attracted by the beauty of Byzantine mosaics and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representations of the image curious and innovative.

I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending and I have identified in the process of weaving an alternative way for the realization of three-dimensional object adapted to the shapes of the body. I used these two-dimensional surfaces such as pictorial space and trough an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colored sculpture of paper intertwined.

Despite the amazing complexity of the realization, the forms created staged an authentic game of surfaces, shapes and colors. It’s express the will to intrigue the viewer through a visual and tactile experience. The observer is thus encouraged to active the elaborate process of perception based on sensory and cultural contrast. Approved in the form.

Are portraits. Are people. Are anonymous identity. It’s an abnormality  of thought. Portrait360° represents profiles contemporary people to 360 degrees.
