Time and Atmosphere
001. Pasta before and after. 002. I was initially interested in capturing smoke or vapor that is non-solid and oscillating. I failed but some interesting moments existed. 3D scanning is not very great at capturing the atmosphere, meaning it seems to have difficulty in identifying individual objects but rather sees the world as a continuous fabric without boundaries, material differences, etc. 007. I can’t quite tell if I somehow captured the smoke as a texture. 008. Overlay! Collapsing of time possibly? The lack of data looks similar i.e. openings in the mesh. 009. Random objects. 010. Again, terrible at capturing the atmosphere but also transparent objects, sadly. 012. Glasses with different variables. Complete transparency was failed to be captured although there existed some level of tint in the color; however, only the lowermost part with a higher level of refractivity was identified as an object. Objects inside the transparent materials helped but still resulted in the deformation of its form. 013. Translucent materials can be captured but openings weren’t captured accurately, possibly due to their reflection and refraction. 014. Skylight. 015. Transparent material, I am not sure what to do with them. There was a lot of sun reflection on this plasticky transparent material, so I had some hope of capturing its form but failed, of course. I wanted to try a version of the inverse where the light is coming from inside but it was too dark out to capture everything else. 016. Section! It’s interesting to see how it articulates depth. 017. Coffee. 019. If it can’t capture the atmosphere, how about time? Each photo functions as a pixel of an image, however, there exists a time-lapse. I could argue that the process is somehow the sum of its mass through a certain duration of time. 020. Coffee is dark, so I assumed it would be captured well. 021. But not in all cases, sad. 022. Somewhat of a success. Liquid existing both. 023. Wanted to perfect the glass geometry by rotating but forgot there existed a handle. So, Octopus.
