Doppelganger is a series of seven digital portraits, created using 3D character modeling and animation software. The work is presented as a series of larger-than-life digital prints and animation software, and a real-time 3D environment addressing the portraiture environment. The portraits depict artist friends and colleagues in Basel, where I was an artist-in-residence at iaab from Jan - June 2002.

The work reflects upon the historical tradition of portraiture, as an important genre in art history and explores the potential of this in the 21st century.
