Materializing the Digital: artist talk by Sophie Kahn

Brooklyn-based, Australian digital artist Sophie Kahn has been using 3D imaging technology in her work for over ten years. She combines cutting-edge means of reproduction, like 3d laser scanning and 3d printing, with ancient bronze casting techniques, to create works that suggest deconstructed digital memorials.

The precise 3d scanning technology she uses was never designed to capture the body. When confronted with breath and motion it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, generating a 3d ‘motion blur’. Kahn's work explores the ways in which technology fails to understand the body, and what the poetics of that failure might look like.
