A POINTCLOUD CABINET OF CURIOSITIES


Installation I 3D Design I VR I Poster
Forming a core part of my MFA thesis, A Pointcloud Cabinet of Curiosities takes the Renaissance concept of Wunderkammer as a starting point: I put myself into the shoes of a 19th century naturalist in a 21st century context by creating my own cabinets of curiosities through the process of acquisition, collecting, owning and displaying. Taking a step further from just re-creating a Victorian cabinet of curiosities, I scanned real objects derived from the natural world using 3D technology and reduced them to color pixel information out of which I derived and re-created new species as part of my own process in order to fit my own narrative of color.
