MOSAICS 360°

PORTRAIT 360°

Attracted by the beauty of fabric construction and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representation 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 system of weaving an alternate way to construct three-dimensional shapes. The idea is not to create three-dimensional objects based on body shape, but turning a two-dimensional surface like paper or canvas, 3D object adapted to body shapes. I have been using these two-dimensional surfaces as pictorial space and through an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colorful sculpture of paper or canvas intertwined. Are portraits. Are people. Anonymous identities. It is an abnormality of mind. Portraits are a 360° of contemporary people.
