Brick, Wall, Map.
The deconstruction of a wall would reveal the masonry, the basic units, the fault lines. How do these translate when deconstructing that same wall after it has been digitized through photogrammetry? Bending outward, the face geometries reveal natural groupings. The original texture map indicates still other possible discretizations. Perhaps these are new bricks. Perhaps, instead, they are methods for re-grouping old bricks. Perhaps they could be re-grouped to re-group a grouping. Regardless of interpretation, a puffed out version of the real brick itself becomes the backdrop for these regroupings, material theater in digital space. In the land of morphing, the impression of a brick is not a brick but a manipulable series of points, which can expand from object to wall to room, individually or as a discrete cluster. The layers of our product highlight all directions.
