NOISE: ERROR IN THE VOID_ScanLAB Projects
21st March – 15th May 2014
Using terrestrial LIDAR technology it is now possible to capture the world in three dimensions. This technology can create near perfect digital 3D replicas of buildings, landscapes, objects and events. But these digital replicas are always an illusion of perfection. NOISE: ERROR IN THE VOID explores the inherent mistakes made by modern technologies of vision. Here we see the unedited view of the world as seen through the eyes of the LIDAR machine. Reality is shrouded in a cloud of mistaken measurements, confused surfaces and misplaced three dimensional reflections.
ScanLAB Projects is a London based design studio experimenting with the potentials of large scale 3D scanning. They work internationally, taking hyper surveys of the world alongside scientists, activists, architects and filmmakers. The work they create is a response to these collected digital doppelgangers, manifested as objects, installations, images and film. Their work has been exhibited internationally, recently at Bergen KunstHall, Norway, The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen, CinemaXXI, Rome, The Architectural Association, London, and the Royal Academy, London.
