The Art of 3D Scanning With Rosalie Yu


Rosalie Yu is a creative technologist at the Brown Institute for Media Innovation, Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and a recipient of the 2018 Myers Fund art commission grant. Through a study of her past work and inspiring projects from around the world, Yu offered an introduction to the 3D scanning process as well as an invitation to participate in her latest endeavour: a workshop and exhibition exploring how the imperfection of 3D scanning can curate a meditative process entitled Knowing Together.Watch the full seminar on Vialogues.

Excerpts from the discussion:

@03:02 Cinthia Fabian: 3D scanning gives us images that are more precise representations of how we actually experience the world. My question is: In what ways does it/ought it deviate from "the real"?

@10:59 Porsha Monroe: Ritual of Habits - an interesting reflection on how Yu's observation of her own family's consumption of sugar inspired this project.

@27:00 Zoe Logan: 3D scanning as both accessibility, documentation and historical tools for private, destroyed or distant pieces. Some are made with the blessing of the owners, some are done as acts of rebellion or reverence.
