‘Close To Two Hundred’ RMIT GRADUATE EXHIBITION 2013
The Animate Body And Obsessions Of Realism
Within this 3 channel video installation I attempted to examine the strive for ‘realism’ in the depiction of the human body within 3D CGI content. An investigation into the attempt to create a ‘perfect depiction’ and an idealized form of ourselves and the questions it raises when the hegemonic conventions associated are broken. Are depictions of the ‘perfect’ human body so prevalent and ‘normal’ that it causes discomfort when we subvert these depictions?
