Help me create the first high quality 3 Dimensional Body Paint Hologram Image viewable with the naked eye.
Holographic Body Painting by Paul Roustan
I need your help!
The biggest problem I face with my work is the viewer's perception of what is real and what isn't. I'm often asked,
"Is this photoshop or is it real?"
As a result, to erase any doubt, body painting is best viewed via video and live performance.
But I thought,
'HEY! What if I were to make a holographic body paint image?'
A framed, wall hangable, true 3D image floating in space. No 3D glasses or magic mirrors needed, all viewable with the naked eye.
Well, that's what I've been trying to do for the last two years. I have been unable to successfully get a grant, due to the nature of the art form. Body painting is either something you love or hate. And this rings true in the case of grant jurors.
So, I am trying again, by way of kickstarter.
• I have some pretty great and affordable backer rewards. Many of which are my high quality prints at discounted prices. I also have a new DVD and hand airbrushed Roustan Body Paint T-shirt available.
• Art collectors, this is a chance to get a very unique original artwork at close to cost. The holographic print is hand developed, making each one unique. And it will be limited to a very small run. One of the holograms will be part of various gallery shows all over the world. So, it is an artwork that is expected to gain dramatically in value.
After creation, if funded, the hologram will only be available at triple the listed backer cost. So, now is the time to invest in it.
• If you can't help fund the project, please pass the word on!
Please share if you care!
I'm going to have Scar be the subject for the hologram! She is one of my favorite models, and she will knock it out of the park!
Again! there isn't even anything digital about this final 3D image at all. It's all old school art making.
The human body is hand painted with an air brush. The hologram is then created using laser light exposing a photo sensitive film, which is then processed according to traditional hand applied dark room developing techniques.
Everything is made by hand, each copy unique.
The final image will be a 12" x 16" limited edition monochromatic portrait body painting, from the bust up, floating three dimensionally on your wall.
Here's a video sample of my body paint work via video (included on dvd backer reward):
