Visual artist Alison Bennett‘s ‘Shifting Skin’ project features photos of people’s skin and tattoos captured with a repurposed flatbed scanner. A digital component using augmented reality enables observers to see a virtual overlay of projected 3D simulations on their smartphone or tablet.

These feature representations of the tattoos, skin tone and texture. You can look around the 3D content by moving the screen across the surface of the virtual object projecting out of the physical print.

‘Shifting Skin’ is an examination of surface and embodiment via digital encounter. The images are wrapped around “a landscape of peaks and valleys describing the tonal scale within the surface of the subject, the terrain of scars, tattoos, skin tone and texture.” Click through to see pictures of the art project:
