AbstractDigital Sculpture. Experimental use of a system for digitalizing and modeling 3D objects.
ObjectiveExperimentation with digital tools and various design processes of 3D forms in fine arts, design and architecture. Practicing and playing with dimensionality and sense of space.
ContentThe department of Architecture and Fine Arts has a 3D-Bodyscanner available for the digitalization of persons and objects, and is complimented by a special software for modeling the 3D data.
After a period of training and practice, participants are asked to develop ideas and concepts for their own projects. These concepts should be used to lead and expand the system and the possibilities of its application. The process of readjustment and its realization will be a continual part of developing the individual projects.
