Silicon Corpses – Digital Photomanipulation

Probably 10 years ago I started experimenting with digital painting and photo manipulation. At that time, I attended a short drawing course of Manga comics and discovered a great Japanese manga artists – Tsutomu Nihei, and his collection of manga books titled Blame! which became a great influence in a photo montage project I titled Silicon Corpses.

Based on Blame! and NOiSE books, I created a some sort of garments with wire and surgical fabric. I asked few friends to pose with those garments, I took some photographs using as reference some drawings from the books and then finished the work in the computer.

Hace 10 años comencé a experimentar con pintura digital y manipulación de fotografías. En esa época realicé un curso de Manga y descubrí a un gran dibujante japonés llamado Tsutomu Nihei, autor de libros como Blame! y NOiSE, quien me influenció bastante y me animó a realizar una serie de foto manipulaciones llamada Cadáveres de Silicio.

Con base en viñetas e ilustraciones de libros Blame y NOiSE, realicé trajes hechos de alambre dulce y tela quirúrgica (muy barata). Unas amigas posaron con estos trajes para las fotos base y posteriormente terminé el trabajo en el computador.

This is the result of my work:
