“I made a model of Kiki in 2008 to use for another project based on all of the various photos of Man Ray.   I turned her head around, breaking her neck, to turn her into an “impossible object,” a kind of Sphinx.   I then imagined her as a Times Square billboard, and covered her with flashing billboards, but made from the original Dada magazine covers.  The purpose of the work is to turn  Kiki into a goddess, the “Kiki.obj.”


Claudia Hart has been active as an artist, curator and critic since 1988. She works with digital trompe l’oeil as a medium, directing theater and making media objects of all kinds. These include multi-channel 3D animation installations, sculptures using industrial production techniques such as Rapid Prototyping, CNC routing, and virtual and mixed reality environments, and  augmented-reality custom apps. Hart’s works deal with issues of representation, and the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and what might be called the natural. Her project is to de-masculinze the culture of corporate technology by inserting the irrational and the personal into the slick, overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design. She is widely exhibited and collected by galleries and museums including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum, the New Museum, Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology, where she was an honorary fellow in 2013-14.  She works with Transfer gallery in New York.  She is married to the Austrian media artist Kurt Hentschlager, and lives in Chicago where she is a tenured professor at the School of the Art Institute.

Reconstructing Modernity


Static 3d render. Based on: Man Ray, The meeting (revolving door), 1916/1942

“The idea  was to try and reconstruct through parametric and algebraic mathematical modeling some of the forms found on the original Man Ray piece (the central helicoid,for example) and project them in 3d space”. Fotis Begetis

Stereoscopy is a technique used and the viewing of images, drawings, photographs and films, adapted to transmit an illusion of three-dimensionality, similar to that generated by the binocular vision of the human visual system.
The image “stereoscopies à la main” allows you to enjoy the images separately, but the lack of a suitable non-stereoscopic vision allows you to enjoy them in three dimensions.
Starting from two separate images for each eye I made a 3D image which, using simple glasses with magenta and cyan lens, allows you to see the three-dimensional effect, bringing the object photographed in a unified and real way“. Giulio Regosa

Ma Main, Ray (2016)


3D Modeling, digital image. Based on: Man Ray, Main Ray, 1935

Download hi-res


“Wanting to pay a tribute to Man Ray’s Main Ray (1935), a mannequin hand holding a billiard ball, I turned it into a 3D model. In Ma Main, Ray (2016), I replaced the billiard ball with a glass marble, a woman’s bust casted into it. The female body is a reference to my recent series Woman as a Temple, featuring a parade of headless, often overweight female bodies rendered in unnatural colors and unusual materials. The series will be soon released by Editorial Vortex as an artist book”. Kamilia Kard
