3D scanning turns a trip to the subway to virtual travel (+ video)
Chris Koleman of once a day travels to Denver by the subway. By means of manual 3D the scanner and the laptop the painter wrote down all events in the Denver subway. The project was placed in operation in 2013 of DENVER DIGERATI for DENVER THEATRE DISTRICT (Denver theatrical district).
The subway is a travel which begins outside and moves inside. From time to time enveloping, and from time to time tearing off and discouraging, time makes advance and becomes simpler. It is documentation of a physical place transferred with fine details, flowers and different structures. Some real trips were processed and digitized to give fine abstract feelings which differ from detachment which can be tested during stay in public transport.
Train scanned during circulation from the 1st end of structure to another, and and stations embodied a tunnel during malekhanky walks in intervals of stops. Fragmentation and gaps in data are defined by physical blows, speed, turns during travel which affected a hand of the artist in the course of scanning. Final models transfer a certain moment, an interval of time. Thus, each new picture will be never similar on previous though what of them the unique body at some point represents travel.
Chris Koleman collected data, having used PrimeSense Carmine and Skanect. Processed them in Blender Cycles by means of render.st render-farm. Watch video below, it specifies Chris Koleman’s creative work:
