untouched v.n

Production Year: 2021 Format Augmented reality

untouched v.n. is a series of 3D scanned selfies which began in 2015. under the title Virtual Narcissism (v.n.). They have since evolved into an iteration of performative and interactive virtual sculptures activated by augmented reality. Martina Menegon experiments with the idea of a three-dimensional selfie, of digitizing oneself as an intimate process and as a journey of discovery and learning our virtual identities. Using 3D scanning as an artistic medium, Menegon’s autoscanner procedure, combined with the use of low-budget technology, challenges the notion of virtual perfection and exposes the results of scans “as is”, with all resulting faults, errors and data loss.
