A moment in time and space
In this assignment I was interested in exploring digital artifacts created by 3D scanning objects and spaces with ambiguous reference points. These scans don’t necessarily accurately represent the physical object as it exists, but they become incredibly interesting as representations of intangible traits that were captured in the scanning process. I scanned a thin piece of glycerin with curves carved into the top to experiment with translucent materials and representations of light. The resulting scan is an entirely new terrain formed from the reflections and shadows of the carved curves. The collection of crumpled papers also merges into a new terrain as the scan doesn’t capture the thin edges of twisted papers. I documented the concrete stairwell landing of Gund Hall as another test of ambiguous reference points in a discrete space.
