People are laser-scanned using a body scanner that employs a 3D photographic process originally developed for the fashion industry. Their data is then sent to an extruder, which recreates their body shape slice-by-slice in plastic. It is a lengthy process, but it results in an exact reproduction of the person in question - a three-dimensional self-portrait in a pose chosen by the subject. The figure is produced entirely by mechanical means, and the replica stands in the middle of the exhibition as if transposed directly from the real world. The process was developed especially for this project, in which it is being used for the first time.
