The solo exhibition showcases the artist’s lenticular works and is titled ‘Point Clouds’. The show explores themes of how our lives are driven by data. The massive amount of data that has been generated has now become the fertile sediment birthing artificial intelligence and forcing us to even confront existential questions about what exactly are life and sentience.
‘Point Clouds’ is a technical term for location data maps representing objects in three dimensions and are generally produced using 3D scanners and photogrammetry software, which measure many points on the external surfaces and objects to chart them as a cloud of location data points.
The artist uses the point cloud paradigm of data points to create objects using 3d Software. Rather than generate data points from a real-world object, the artist reverses the paradigm by manually creating data points first in 3D virtual space and then connecting the points together to form a 3D mesh that is texture mapped to arrive at a three-dimensional virtual object. The final artwork is a composite of objects woven out of data points and presented as an animated stereoscopic lenticular print.
