Sculpting with digital errors
Lauren Moffatt has worked for many years on image spaces and images in volumes. With the Compost series, the artist explores forms of deceleration and regeneration, using technologies from video games.
The creation of images thus takes cross roads and follows a realization made up of accidents and dialogues with machines. Her original practice of photogrammetry consists of working with a reduced number of photos, varying focal lengths, photographing subjects too closely, or causing willful errors by photographing moving subjects. The textures are then painted and the points retouched in the photogrammetry software.
By creating a digital strangeness and effects combining the sublime and digital flaws, the artist’s interventions return to the living its share of turmoil and indeterminacy.
