Nude forms a hybrid body made of anthropomorphic leathers for gloves, artificial silicone skins and a completely bare screen, like an organism of cables and translucent layers. Nude is also this color created by the fashion world, aiming at a “natural” appearance of the skins – but the white ones. The video projected on the screen is the first 3D mapped hand (and therefore the first skin) created in 1972 by Ed Catmull, future founder of Pixar. From the transformation of animals to that of bodies, the installation conjures up images of a human being each time recreated or emulated by technology.
