Inspired by a vision of photographing a sculpted structure projected on a nude, we started working on a series of photographs depicting models ‘dressed’ in objects. The forms displayed on the body absorb it, the new growths deform it/redefine its shapes. The Hybrid Figures project is based on the collaboration between two media, which allows us to create a new context, both for the sculpture and for the photograph.
