The Everyone Project is a series of digital prints, carved wooden and gilded bronzed sculptures highlighting people as 'Gods'. They are portraits of adults and children in everyday western clothes adopting poses that suggest religious characters. All poses were digitally manipulated into one image for each of the four different camera views - front, back, left, and right side. Once the techniques to create the imagery and a photographic suite of poses with different sitters had been developed we then located wood carvers to sculpt the photographic images. We settled on Indonesian wood carvers from the village of Tengulak Ubud on the island of Bali. They began carving eight figures some life size detailed as if they have clothing and with good facial and hand detailing similiar to the photographs.
