about

“it's a matter of perspective” is a virtual sculpture that is in constant and dynamic change. At every new start, the software instantiate the singular elements (a set of virtual clones of the artist’s roughly 3D-scanned body) as well as a set of rules and constrains that determine the overall sculptural form. As the avatars performed and are performed by the code, they unite in the center to form an organic sphere, one of the Primitive Object Types in 3D, that due to repeated disruption, is in constant shift and never settles.

Reflecting on the idea as well as display of sculpture works in the virtual, “it’s a matter of perspective” embrace the “click&drag to rotate” 3D models viewers interactions for the outside and detached perspective view of the work but, as the main sculptural form is created by singular entities, it adds the possibility to temporarily shifts perspective and move to the intimate point of view of a randomly picked avatar.
Inspired by the notion of Simulated Reality and in particular by Zhuangzi’s concept of the transformation of things in “Butterfly Dream”, “it's a matter of perspective” looks at the multitudes of the contemporary self and its multi-simulated-realness.
