Flat Models

This project explores the discrepancies between the flatness of the orthographic projection and the actual form depicted through the photogrammetry scanning process.

First, we collected a set of facades for scanning, and the scans formed three-dimensional models. Second, we used a projector to cast the scanned model onto paper models - to depict the intricate shapes and patterns. The two materials we applied were the projection - the 'material' - and paper - working as a malleable yet surface ideal for depicting the mesh faces used in the digital models.

An observation we began to pick up was the subjectiveness in the way light plays a role in the photogrammetry scanning process. The way shapes and patterns were getting picked up was heavily influenced by the amount of light hitting the models, and where light could not reach began to translate a completely new understanding of space.
