Our main inspiration comes from Julian Voss-Andreae’s invisible sculpture work. The initial intention is to build an object with primitive form which is contoured into vertical plates that allows visual transparency/penetration from certain angles. Thus, our investigation and exploration start with the question of how scanning software recognizes and captures the void between the vertical plates. As a result, the scanning software will treat the background as a part of the object’s texture under the circumstance that has proper lighting and distinctive floor condition. The final scan has two distinctive textures on two sides; they are derived from the two existing floor conditions. The scan, in this case, naturally possesses strong vertical grain. We choose to use it as the opportunity to further emphasize the duality of the scanning result and create a occupiable space by transforming it into a Möbius strip.
