2019 The Bum

3D render of Kim Kardashian’s bum, made to be explored in true size. See the webpage here: seethebum.com
 Featured in It’s nice that and Vice among others. 



Notes
F
ive years after Paper Magazine broke the internet with an image of Kim Kardashian’s behind, the bum is once again put into the limelight. “The Bum” aims partly to address the disproportionate media attention given to celebrities and partly to explore the modern symbols that are being created in an era where fame is measured in likes and engagement. By analyzing hundreds of images, statements, and public observations the proportions, size, and texture could be digitally manifested through a hyperrealistic 3D rendering. While never expressing or explaining the artwork, the internet and particularly todays practice of yellow journalism were used to serve as a global exhibition space.

Techiniques used include 3D rendering, photomanipulation and web development.

As the scale of the bum is the same on different devices, you can see more or less of it as a user depending on what you use.
