H.R Giger!!!!

Ahhh I do love him, have done since a young age actually, though i didnt know it at the time when my mom would let me stay up late and watch 'Aliens' on t.v if I was good lol...

But that aside, I feel my project somehow slipping toward photo-manipulation, and although his work uses a lot of airbrush techniques, I'm really intrested in the theme of self-alteration, which i think is a key aspect of self portraiture and identity...

There's just something about his work that I really feel drawn to, maybe the fact you can't quite make out what it
is your looking at straight away, which also challanges our programming to au
tomatically recognise a face, or facial features..
