Location: Syracuse, NY | Type: Inaugural Harry the Bogosian Fellowship Project: LiDAR Materiality | Year: 2017 | Status: Completed

The project MARBLE ~ISH is as an exploration how LiDAR scanning can challenge our understanding of materiality and space.

The so called Marble room is the Syracuse University’s Architecture exhibition space and marble-ish was the final part of the inaugural Harry Der Boghosian fellowship.


While traditional scanning projects understand their output as absolute truths,

~ ish focuses on the exhibition as site for a different kind of contextualism. 

Through a variety of digital operations the installation is transformed into 
an active landscape which questions the scanner’s ability to accurately document — and thus produce — a definitive picturing of the real.


As such, the installation allows us to speculate on 
the potential of many new depictions of the real all brought together in a single, mediated space.
