Austrian artist Aldo Tolino’s human portraits are the outcome of a multi-step creative loop which goes along the lines of: shooting a portrait, printing it on paper, then creasing it, tucking it and folding it until a brand new facial expression is created before shooting the printed-portrait-turned-sculpture for the final result. During this process, the more you rearrange the shape of the triangle grid on the surface of the printed-portraits, the more facial expressions you generate. Every time Tolino photographs the geometrically folded three-dimensional sculptural-object, a new portrait of the same person is created. The result is a series of photographs that masterfully portray ''crumbled faces'’ that serve to open a dialogue between portraiture and sculpture.
Aldo Tolino is currently working on a book project entitled ‘’interferenz’’ which takes a closer look at topics such as paper, folding, image, object, sculpture, texture and recursion. His never-ending loop between image and sculptural objects can also be viewed on his official website.
