The images in this series were created by applying several different numerical algorithms to a set of Playboy centerfolds.
When I began the project, I worried about the violent reduction involved in representing the human form as a series of numbers to treat mathematically. Initially, these images implied to me a devaluation of the human in favor of the technological.
This interpretation breaks down because the Playboy women are abstractions to begin with, tricks of photography and airbrushing. Instead I prefer to imagine that I am carrying Playboy’s project to its completion. The magazine wanted to portray the women of dreams or fantasies; it is these dream images that I have tried to create out of Playboy’s tawdry approximations.
