The HOLY TEXTURES series consists of three 3D sculptures created from a high-resolution image of the Shroud of Turin, one of the most iconic visual images in religious history. What is it that we believe these days? Technology?

Solimán López used its texture to generate a sequence of visual extractions that replicate the visual objectification of this well-known cloth, which has sparked hundreds of debates concerning its existence and veracity. The fabric is re-evaluated and transformed into a visual resource, sculpture, and a work of art.

The original image was turned into a variety of basic textures that are commonly utilized in the area of 3D modeling and virtual reality.

Solimán López is an artist from Spain who divides his time between Paris and Mallorca. His primary artistic focus is on the interpretation of social, ethical, moral, psychological, economic, sociological, and artistic changes resulting from the digital revolution and the use of new technologies in the realm of the everyday.

Solimán is the founder of the Harddiskmuseum in 2014, the first museum in the history of art to reside in a 2TB hard drive loaded with digital artworks by more than 125 international artists. He also runs the Innovation Lab at the Escuela Superior de Arte y Tecnologa de Valencia. The museum was also the first in history to have a genetic code "backup" of its metadata.

Solimán's work has been shown in a number of countries, including the Digital Art Biennial in Brazil, the ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany, the Asia Center in Gwanyu, South Korea, and the Aperture Foundation in New York.
