Data Projections, is series of portraits of scientists. The photographs show their faces in dim lighting, cropped tightly against a black background. On their faces, bright patterns and images are projected; these visuals are taken from the scientist’s own research topic and include images such as microscopy photos of neurons or camera trap photographs of deer. The scientists, photographed here with organic lines and fluorescent patterns shining on their face, are presented as beings linked with their research. With Data Projections, I recreate the fleeting moment that sometimes occurs during scientific talks, when a speaker steps too close to the beam of light projecting their presentation, and as a result, intercepting part of their visuals with their face.
