The Messengers is a research project involving a new collaboration with scientists in the field of biomedical visualization through 3D facial scanning. The project uses and manipulates the scan data in order to create a shift in scale from the human to the gigantic and from the solid to the almost immaterial, resulting in the production of a new artistic work - three giant sculpted inflatable forms.
The work draws inspiration from classical images of Hypnos, the god of sleep, and the work of the Surrealists, conjuring journeys of the imagination in conjunction with real spaces.
