Drained / Self-portrait III
Photogrammetry and Animation: Ghazal Majidi
Music: Behrang Najafi
Drained is the third experiment in the self-portrait series. It was done using photogrammetry for the 3D scanning and point cloud generation and was then programmed for animation via noise inputs. The self-portrait series is meant to expose the artist in her most vulnerable state while setting new aesthetics and technical benchmarks in her body of work. Drained tries to imitate the structure of memory in a minimalistic manner as it sheds its layers through time, leaving behind only fragments of existance. The music of the piece was chosen from a dark-ambient electronic piece called Awakeoneironaut by Behrang Najafi.
