Shoot me, Print me, Tuck me, Fold me and then Shoot me Again. Aldo Tolino’s human portraits are of a creative loop which goes along the lines of: shooting a portrait, printing it on paper, then creasing it, tucking it and folding it until a brand new facial expression is created before shooting the printed-portrait-turned-sculpture for the final result. During this process, the more you rearrange the shape of the triangle grid on the surface the more facial expressions you generate.
"Beneath the social mask we wear every day,we have a hidden shadow side:an impulsive,wounded,sad,or isolated part that we generally try to ignore.The Shadow can be a source of emotional richness & vitality,& acknowledging it can be a pathway to healing & an authentic life.We meet our dark side,accept it for what it is,& we learn to use its powerful energies in productive ways.-"Romancing the Shadow," by Connie Zwieg, PhD.,& Steve Wolf, PhD.
