ScanCam
(2007)

project

In 2007 I designed and built the ScanCam (daguerreotype technology – basically a wooden box in a box camera with a large format lens and a mutilated desk-top digital scanner substituting a glass or film back). It was my personal introduction to the digital world, the concept being – start again from the basics! I soon discovered that it was a wonderful instrument to learn about the variety of dimensions that exist between space and time. As with my analogue images there is little post-pro as the image is entirely created in the camera itself – full frame.
