Three-dimensional scans form an assemblage of distant yet intimate encounters with friends/subjects.

This project revolves around the idea of creating an assemblage of my distant yet intimate encounters with my friends/subjects. I am very much interested in the spatial and temporal 'entanglements' which the medium of 3-dimensional scans seems to be flirting with. I think about the act of 'scanning' not only in technical and aesthetic terms but as a mode that perhaps might offer the granularity of that which is captured in a nuanced and multifaceted way. Combining interactive VR with a three-dimensional environment enables me to research this world/place/space in which my subjects' experiences collide under the guidance of my hand as an image-maker.
