Own Skin

A interactive mirror-like installation

Joep Truijen

Own skin consists of a 3d model of a body with pieces of 'skin' stitched together from online databases. The 3d model copies the movement of the spectator standing in front of it. It creates a space where we can confront and/or reflect our values about our own image we would usually see in a mirror.

“Own Skin” A interactive mirror-like installation

Joep Truijen’s work is, among other things, based around reflecting our self image. Using mostly interactive installations as his medium he creates a space where we can confront and/or reflect our values about this self image.

As Joep Truijen’s expertise in 3d computer generated imagery came to grow he has started to fall for unconventional ways of creating within this 3d space. As so he shuffled around with some of the conventional processes of creating 3d textures for characters making him into an almost Dr. Frankenstein like creator of this character.

For this work Truijen has looked at the character's blank image texture as a classical blank canvas and the images, collected on the internet, were used as paint to build and layer up its composition from top to bottom. The images of skin that were used mainly consists out of model polaroids, skin care commercials, medical images and erotic images as their search results provide high resolution imagery with large sections of naked and natural skin with natural lighting.
