"Bodyfraction"
Artist: Uršula Berlot, Sunčana Kuljiš
Title: Bodyfraction
Duration: 07:40
Year: 2020
Genre: Experimental video / Art video

 
SYNOPSIS

The video Bodyfraction parallels microscopic images of fragments of the artist’s body (tooth enamel, skin, nails, hair etc.) with recordings of drawings and light-sensitive objects created on their basis. Drawings were digitally processed towards simulating the chemical process called 'reaction diffusion' which models (mathematically or visually) the behaviour of two chemicals in a solution as they mix. Such animated drawings form fractal-like patterns and together with modified recordings of reflective light-works surfaces, they create an entry into imaginary hidden topography (macro, micro or nano dimensions) in motion.
The title refers to the motif (body) and the processing method (microscopic diffraction) through which the microscopic pictures were treated. Relief surfaces of pictures and drawings were derived from digitally modified microscopic views of bodily fragments that were essentially transfigured through the digital process of inverse fast Fourier transformation (IFFT); this represented the first in a series of digital procedures directed towards their denaturalisation.
In collaboration with prof. Sašo Šturm, Ph.D. and Matejka Podlogar, Ph.D., Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana – Department for Nanostructured Materials)
