This artwork is part of the “A journey into the real world” series. I use AI generated portrait as a basis. I take her from the virtual world to the real world. I revive her, give her skin and a new look, and then bring her back to the virtual, digital world. Her journey was not easy. She took all the burden of the real world with her.
Following the example of the polaroid emulsion lift technique, I wished I could do the same process with my digital photography. Lots of reading, studying, experimenting, but in the end I managed to develop my own inkjet emulsion lift technique. I print a basic photo on a special foil with emulsion, immerse it in a certain liquid, separate the emulsion from the substrate, manipulate with skin of emulsion by rinsing and transfer it to a new substrate. After that, I return it to digital form and accentuate certain segments by drawing . On this work I used two layers of skin.

Amazing artistry, Gordana. I enjoy looking at all the thin 'contour' like lines, as if I'm trying to find the woman's 'facial contour', then I'm lost in the fascinating way the linear weaves on, around, & through. It's quite clever, being minimalist, but I'm absorbed by it. Your explained process, I found impressive, which I think I understand.
