about

Clones of the artist’s 3D-scanned face occupy the virtual space of one of the Atelier of Casa degli Artisti. Motionless and life-less, some lay on the floor, some float in the air. In addition to this sculptural intervention in the virtual space, audience can also teleport and explore another dimension with no architectural boundaries, in which these faces not only exist but constitute the environment to explore. When exploring both worlds, users have the option to also become part of the work itself by using the same face as their avatar.
“I looked around for you, but I could only find myself” explores embodiment and rethinks how we identify and connect with ourselves. In a surreal situation in which one is surrounded by the same face and becomes one of them, a familiar stranger in a new identity that only arises in its plurality.
