Ephemer(e)ality Capture – Workshop

Ephemer(e)ality Capture is a practice-based workshop in which participants hack, disturb and glitch the parameters of photogrammetry. Participants will use free or open-source 3D scanning apps and software (which they can access online) to scan objects or environments.

Throughout the workshop, participant are invited to use reflective, invisible, specular, refractive, or ‘ephemeral’ materials to create images which actively confuse the visualising algorithm. This will engage users in a methodology for creating counter-aesthetics and disrupting digital tool’s restrictions through acts of ‘détournement’.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will have learned about the image-making algorithms of contemporary 3D imaging technologies and how they struggle to capture transient and ephemeral objects and environments . Participants will have also learnt technical skills in photogrammetry to create 3D models through methods of ‘play’ which counteract restrictive technical tools in order to promote creativity and plurality of practice.

This event will be held on Zoom. The link to join will be sent out to all registered attendees before the event.
