images and details from my senior project, material paintings

"… Each painting acts as an intervention outside of the computer - eventually returning to the software to replace the original photographic texture maps and coalesce over these 3D objects."

"While the render takes form as a print and is visible from only one perspective, as a digital file it exists in three dimensions. These texture maps contain photographic information for all possible perspectives of the 3D scene. In appropriating them, every potential viewpoint has been painted."
