Virtual portraits produced in collaboration with Ed Paschke, Karl Wirsum and Gero Gries appear to be whimsical at first glance, but take on another form of deconstructed realities. Paschke’s Self-Portrait and Gero Gries’s Sally C are examples of early virtual portraits, sculpted from scanned imagery of real subjects, while Wirsum’s characters are entirely imagined, computer generated characters. The selected virtual portraits recall a Duchampian view of the world that invites the viewer to be more present, in which our world would otherwise become dystopian without our conscious awareness.
