Portraits360 are overviews of the human face in low and high resolution. Portraits360 are 360° degrees views of humans social. Humans that share their own face, face that in Portrait360° is conceived with an unusual rotation of the face. Attracted by the beauty of Byzantine mosaics and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representations of the image curious and innovative. The result is a colored sculpture of paper intertwined. Despite the amazing complexity of the realization, the forms created staged an authentic game of surfaces, shapes and colors. It’s express the will to intrigue the viewer through a visual and tactile experience. The observer is thus encouraged to active the elaborate process of perception based on sensory and cultural contrast. Approved in the form. Are portraits. Are people. Are anonymous identity. It’s an abnormality of thought. Portrait360° represents profiles contemporary people to 360 degrees.
