Abstract:

  • (Short paper)

    Keywords: Colonisation, 3d laser scanning, mapping.

    This paper offers reflections on an artwork entitled, At Sea, (2012). At Sea is a picture derived from a 3d laser scan of a wave, presented as a two dimensional digital image, and printed at variable scales. My conceptual interests in this artwork were concerned with disrupting perceptions of the ‘first world’ as being perceived as ‘the centre’ and the ‘third world’ as being perceived as marginal. I have written this paper from the position of both the artist and commentator. I discuss my background research, working process, innovative use of technology, thoughts about ways of looking, methodology and results. Particularly noteworthy is my use of 3d laser scanning within a fine art context.
