CHAPTER THREE

3D SCANNING

___________

“I work with all of this imagery not because I want to be morbid, but because I am interested in exploring the ways that technology can fail to capture life, and what the poetics of that failure might look like. We live in a world where we are so bombarded with claims for all seeing, all-powerful, imaging technologies. It is my belief that as artists destabilizing those, through poetics, might actually prove to be the strongest weapon that we have.”

Sophie Kahn, from the Digital Scanning Leaders in Software and Art Conference, Guggenheim Museum, New York
