These images are portraits made by scanning objects carried in the pocket by randomly selected people. They are based precisely on a traditional notion in the history of art - the portrait - but made from the elements that identify, in a metaphorical way, the specific daily life of the time in which we live, consumption or even the way we relate to each other. The idea will be to continue this series and create a collection of scan-portraits that denote a dichotomy between the private domain of the objects we carry on a daily basis and their exposure in the public domain, in an exposed and fragile 1:1 scale image.
