As a part of my continuing search for ways to literally and figuratively express and portray myself, Skeleton is the art project I started in 2012. Where in previous projects I took my own skin as starting point, this new project begins with my skeleton. The skeleton as the basis for the physical body, but also as the medium for our own ‘eternal identity’, which continues to reveal something of who we were long after our time is over. I have had my entire body scanned using the very latest CT scanner, The digital information reveals my bones individually and was made compatible for use by a 3D printer to produce the most accurate possible copy of my skeleton. This 3D copy represents the true image (vera icon).
As I look at my skeleton from different perspectives, the viewer is drawn into the eternal struggle between mortality and immortality.
