Simon Senn, an artist from Geneva, shows that trying on another person’s body is no longer a pure form of science fiction. Having acquired a full- body 3D photo of a girl on one of the online shops, he uses technology to inhabit that body and to feel the limits at which technology, corporeality, psychology, and the absence of legal boundaries meet today. The seemingly simple 3D technology reveals an extremely complex world where technology intersects with our bodies – how virtual presence can harm our psyche, what rights we have on our body images online, and whether we can be protected by an international law if those images come under threat.
