My project is about 3D scanning. A process of recording 3-dimensional data with a level of detail invisible to the naked eye and information impossible to gather by other mapping technologies. With Google tourism acting as many people’s preferred method of urban spatial research I think 3D scanning is likely to be a major tool in the creation of future online versions of our cities and our world – versions within which people spend more and more of their daily lives.
The Scan Data alters our observation of space, time and society. Through scans I have captured in Dubai, Muscat and London I am going to explore 4 different scales that it affects: S,M,L,XL
