The final work is a collaboration with my wife, the contents of which are a 3d scan of us kissing, myself clothed as my Famous New Media Artist persona, and her nude, missing her feet but supported by our embrace. It is intended to be a simple(yet persona driven) gesture inspired by the mission to immortalize oneself on a gold record heading to space. We wanted to communicate with minimal obstruction (ie. language), a moment in time and space that is very special to us, and indeed we hope, humanity.
