Ephemer(e)ality Capture: Glitching Photogrammetry

Ephemer(e)ality Capture is a practice-based workshop in which participants hack, disturb and glitched the parameters of photogrammetry. Participants use free or open-source 3D scanning apps and software (which they can access online) to scan reflective, invisible, specular, refractive, or ‘ephemeral’ objects and materials to create images that actively confused the imaging algorithm. The workshop involves discussion of the image-making algorithms of contemporary 3D imaging technologies and how they struggle to capture transient and ephemeral objects and environments . Participants would also learn 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.
