nuclear divinities

Year: 2011

Technique: photography, digital collage

 

Nuclear Divinities was created for the French fanzine "L'incident" in 2011. The theme was: "Everything is irradiated" so I decided to play with both religious and nuclear definitions of the term, creating a bunch of cyborg creatures - or cyborg gods - endowed with nuclear powers, the weaponry being incorporated to their bodies. The goal was to make a new series using the same technique as for the "Oïl" project (which was my first time playing with polypropylene). I chose a different palette of plastics (white, grey, dark blue). The cold/blue lighting added the religious/immaculate touch I was looking for.
