/light & shadow body patterns

Collaboration with Yeah Studio and photographer Giovanni Calemma. Yeah studio wanted some nude photos of a woman for a project but needed some ideas on how to approach the subject. I came up with the idea of projecting black and white patterns onto the model, obviously inspired by the famous work of Fernand Fonssagrives in the 30s. What I like the most about his work with light patterns is how the female body becomes an almost abstract composition of shapes but keeps being very recognisable, while its sensuality is almost heightened by the play of light and shadow.

All the graphic patterns in our project are generative and animated in real-time using the Processing programming language and projected directly onto the model. All photos were taken by Giovanni Calemma under the scrupulous supervision of Yeah Studio.
