Mahalia Taje Giotto – Existential Boner

Diploma project by Mahalia Taje Giotto

My degree is the result of years of obsession related to my body and the gender I was assigned at birth. I began my hormonal transition on 13 November 2020 and have since been living a new relationship with my body that I had been waiting for for almost 30 years. The photo book I created for my degree represents these last two years, the obsessions that haunt me in relation to my body, its appearance, the relationships which it allows me to have with others, desires that consume me and how all this chaos is experienced on a daily basis. The use of texts, concrete, abstract and strange images illustrates the changes I have made to my body over the years. The sculptural approach to the book is a reflection of this transition, both literally and conceptually.

During this 5 days introduction, students learned to use Unreal Engine 4 to prototype and test their scenes in real-time. Working in pairs, each of them started to develop a level of a global VR experience that will be presented at the Biennale dell'immagine 2021 in Chiasso.
