Artist Statement also Artist Talk

Video (2015)

In this work, the artist rode the Denver Light Rail with a handheld 3D scanning device in order to capture real journeys and distill them into something new. The fragmentation and gaps in data are defined by the physical bumps, speed, and curves in the movement of the train. While the final models are still, they are in fact documents of time, perspective and perception.  Sound Design by George Cicci. Video: METRO isea sample
