Beautiful large fine art prints of tattoos with 3D augmented reality

Working with representations of human skin captured with a re-purposed flatbed scanner, Australian artist Alison Bennett has complicated the notion of digital photographic surface with an overlay of augmented reality that projects out of the physical print into virtual space.

The image has not been translated back into a limb or torso but wrapped around a landscape of peaks and valleys describing the tonal scale within the surface of the subject, the terrain of scars, tattoos, skin tone and texture.
