This project is based on a 3D-scan technique, which allows me to reproduce an image of my own body as a 3D object in a software. It is possible to view this object not just from outside, but also from the inside as a negative as well, which creates abstract shapes.
The colouration was generated with the help of colour data I took from a real picture.
The film reflects the invisible inner world of an individual, which owns a small universe in itself, created by experiences and feelings - as well in the digital world as in real life. We try to express ourselves and approach our world another being, but still, nobody can see in our souls entirely.
For me, the process of scanning is a very important part of this work itself.
The idea of digitising a body and hence the creation and deformation of its computer generated self, reflects the digital world we live in today. We create an alternative world, in which everybody can be what they want to be. In some way, it resembles to an act of creation.
We never stop building more worlds for ourselves, even though there are already various ones encircling us, that we don't even understand yet.
Each universe encloses another, which creates a new one, and the world next to us still seems far away. And so we look into infinity again, which inevitably surrounds us.
The 2016 Airush Team Series Range introduces a completely fresh look along with extensive technical upgrades and innovations.
For the first time, we present the range in collections, where each has their own visual identity while being aligned with key technologies. This presents a long-term idea of developing the different directions the sport can evolve towards, as kiteboarding embraces such a diverse range of people and riding experiences.
The Team Series Black showcases our premium Freestyle and Wave product, with a completely fresh visual direction inspired by subtlety, details and texture. This Series also focuses on premium materials for lightweight competition oriented product.
The Team Series Reefer showcases our desire to connect more strongly with our environment and reflect the values of pushing your riding boundaries for your own gratification. This is reflected in the use of natural materials and an optimization in the board range towards maximum durability.
For the Diamond Series we worked closely with PKRA contender Bruna Kajiya, to create a collection that offers an extremely versatile range of products with female specific technical and visual attributes.
The Race and Light Wind Series encompass a range of products designed with flat water and lighter wind conditions in mind. Taking you from 6 knots, whether you are blasting around the racecourse or boosting massive airs along with everything in between.
We believe you can find the perfect product in these collections to take your riding to the next level and carve your own path. We are as amped as ever to share in our passion for design and kiteboarding with you into 2016.
