My recent work in progress ‘Data Sets’ is part of the group exhibition ‘Photo’s that research photo’s. The exhibition is the first project of the new expertise centre about photography PRICCAPractice. PRICCAPractice stands for Photographic Research in Cross-disciplinary and Cross-cultural Artistic Practices.
Data Sets is are 3D portraits of my grandmother and father. The portraits are created with photogrammetry algorithms that extract spatial data from a series of photo’s of the same object. Today the technology becomes increasingly popular because of new cloud services such as 123D Catch and Recap. I am interested in the expressive and aesthetic properties of the these technologies, and to which extend they represent reality.
