5 minutes

3D print (powder based composite), iron, tires, 2019

The project is dedicated to Ukrainian soldiers and veterans from the ATO zone.

There are videos and photo reportages from the front. I've tried something new -a 3D war reportage.
I asked the soldiers to stand motionless for "5 minutes" to scan their figures and portraits. 

In the darkness of war, people lose their identity. First reports from the battlefield contained names; after that, it's only numbers. This and that many casualties, this and that many survivors who came back. For me, soldiers are not numbers. What do the people over there look like? My aim was to add faces to the numbers.
