Our group chose to scan a collection of acorns, the facade of Spice Thai Cuisine restaurant, and a disassembled bulb of garlic. Acorns relate to the ephemeral aspect of our project as they develop and drop from their trees through the progression through the year, hence this is one snapshot in time that we have chosen to scan. Furthermore, we selected the intricate facade of the thai restaurant in Harvard Square and captured the intricate details of embellishments as well as the surrounding context of the building such as the side gate, brick pavement, as well as parking meters and street parking spots. Lastly, garlic is compostable and it can also be disassembled into individual cloves from peeling off the skin to breaking them apart, transforming it into something that no longer looks like a bulb of garlic. Through our scan and photogrammetric manipulations, we have taken the theme of repetition of an artifact’s components, (e.g. the acorns, garlic bulbs, and windows of the restaurant facade), and have immersed, intertwined, twisted, inflated, and mashed up our digital artifacts.
