Future Portraits

1 / 9 - Tilen m 29, 2010, photo textile / analog morphing, 220 x 220 cm

One of the things that the parents always think about is: whom will the baby look like? Nowadays we have the means, through simulation, to answer that question. The technique is known as Morphing. The good thing about morphing is it’s preciseness. But I wanted to add people’s imagination and hopes as well. To do that, I combined the digital technique with an analogue one. Two super precise digital portraits of the “parents” on paper are woven together. What emerges is a vague figure of a face combining the facial features of the donors.
The future is always misty and vague and the real answer will come itself, if things work out for the couple, in due time.
