this is a curated growing collection of texture mapping files from human scans or 3d modeling. 

unedited, it represents the way software reads our identities through an algorithm created by Edwin Catmull in 1974. the diffusion layer is a method of wrapping pixels on a 3d object. displayed below is the 2d information used to create highly detailed 3d humans. this is a collection of unrolled identities, stretched and grotesquely deformed into a 2d format.
