BIOGRAM BLUEPRINTS, 2018

Biogram Blueprints is a body of work that explores the digitalization of organic structures through the invisible spectrum of light. At its core, the production process uses measurement techniques from the two ends just outside the visible spectrum of light to contemplate the relationship between the visible and the invisible, the virtual and the actual. The 3D capturing involves IR depth laser scanning technology to compute digital data points of spatial information about the physical dimensions of four live plants. The print series “Biogram Blueprints” uses these 3D scans to explore the other end of the invisible light spectrum through one of the oldest methods of photographic printing - the cyanotype. All prints on view are partially developed, rendering portions of each image to remain sensitive to UV light, and thus undergo physical changes over time. By flattening the digital scans into dynamic topographic maps, the project aims to decode the translation of material and digital memory systems.

Inspired by processes of quantum mechanics, diffraction, deterioration and subatomic field fluctuations, this accompanying light installation expands on the relationship between the virtual and the actual by breaking down the visible spectrum of light. The capturing process of “Zero Point Field” uses IR depth laser scanning technology to compute virtual data points of spatial information about the physical dimensions of four live plants, and animates them into an inter-exchangeable field of particle noise. The piece is installed as a rear projection on a suspended disk of glass.
