"New Sculpt" is a series of dramatically detailed polygonal 3D structures. The process has been to reinterpret photographs using various 3D rendering tools. Returning to the now-aged Second Life platform, LaTurbo Avedon used the process of importing sculpt maps or 'sculpties' as a way to look at images differently. Where the rendering engine is anticipating a prepared sculpt map, which often looks like a smooth gradient of several colors, LaTubo is feeding it a much more complicated sequence of colors when giving it a photographic image. Each imported image has its own conversion to a three-dimensional shape. The resulting objects are often duplicated and arranged to create new formations. For this exhibition, the artist has minted a selection of the 3D structures as NFTs.
