The digital artwork featured in this gallery section are ‘scanographic montages’ created between 2004 and 2012.
Scanography is a digital art process that uses a flat bed scanner as a kind of camera lens to record three dimensional objects. Scans of objects often offer close-up focus on details that aren’t easily captured with a camera. Veins on a leaf or threads in a piece of fabric are magnified in vivid, hyper-reality as direct light from the scanner and close proximity of the object is enhanced during the scanning process.
By using a simple (Roxio) photo features program I eventually began layering and transmogrifying some of the original scanographs into scanographic montages. Something that suggested a fish became a fish; curled tip of a flower became a dancer; edge of a silver spoon glowed like the quarter moon.
