DIGITAL MODELING, 2D + 3D SCANNING, LASERCUTTING
“...translating difficult materials from digital to physical to digital space as an exploration of what gets lost and what initially imperceptible information is gained as human and machine vision converse.” — Welcome To My Guest Room Digital Artists Residency
It is now possible to represent a near-perfect image of the physical world. Objects and environments can be rendered almost omnipotently in spaces that span near-infinity — and then easily materialized right from your print screen. Simultaneously, as a parallel to humans’ inability to perceive the UV/IR spectrum, there are physical materials that seem invisible or disorienting to machines.
While in residence at WTMGR, I processed a variety of these instances I knew to be problematic for data-capture tools to deal with. I generated 3D forms through the extrapolation of hypercomplex surfaces — reflective, intricate, symmetrical. Each resulting gypsum print is the physical distillation of a multi-aspect digital collective; a singular echo of a multitude.
