Art and Science of 3D Scan by Photogrammetry


The Wiki defines Photogrammetry as the science of making measurements from photographs, especially for recovering the exact positions of surface points. And, it may be used to recover the motion pathways of designated reference points located on any moving object, on its components and in the immediately adjacent environment. If you don’t understand this definition then watch this vimeo made by an artist/photographer and hopefully it would explain the process better.

Photogrammetry is an exciting technology according to Kwai Bun, the photographer and creator of this cool stuff!

“I’m an adventurous and enthusiast photographer”, said Bun about his passion.

Bun said the photogrammetry process is especially suitable for high-end human scan due to the flexible scanning scale and speed of acquisition.

This video shows a small clip of Bun’s journey on this project. The founder and director of ManyMany Creations Ltd. & Quantum Matrix Ltd begins to assemble his own rig installation from scratch. The project showcases beautifully presented 3D scanning results for various talents with close-up head, full body and art poses juxtapositions. The video is also a great overview to anyone curious about how photogrammetry can be used in 3D scanning Human.

Sculpted From Books – Cool Stuff


book1_8
This sculpture in a library in Prague was designed by Slovakian artist Matej Kren. There’s a mirror inside so the tunnel of books looks endless when you lean into it.

I have not posted any Cool Stuff for a while so I thought, as a treat, I found a collection of sculptures made from books to share with you.

There aren’t too many details available at the time of the search, but I have this link to the rest of the 13 book sculptures. Enjoy!

Paper sculptor Su Blackwell makes delicate cut-outs that appear to be rising from the center of the book.

This sculptor carves angular pathways into books, making convoluted three-dimensional figures worthy of M.C. Escher.

“Let’s sit and talk”


Arabic Letters As Sculptural Loungers

Made of ultra-dense Styrofoam coated with polyethylene, the furniture-like sculptures are three-dimensional renditions of Arabic script.

My Cool Stuff feature for this week are these 3D sculptures by Marie Khouri. I fell in love with these lounges, a design truly created for dialogue. The beautiful pieces are on a touring exhibition. Look at them, aren’t they exquisite? What a clever design!

Story by Adele Weder 

The sensual shapes in Marie Khouri’s installation, recently on view at Vancouver’s Equinox Gallery, spell out “Let’s Sit and Talk” in Arabic. 

Design speaks to us on the most visceral level, but few can render its language as literally as Vancouver-based artist Marie Khouri. Her latest installation, Let’s Sit and Talk, exhorts us, in word and form, to connect with one another. Each of the 15 pieces is a sculpture you can sit on.

Together, they spell out the exhibition’s title, sculpted in beautiful cursive Arabic script. The quintilingual Khouri, born in Egypt, raised in Lebanon and trained in Paris, has made a career of conflating art with function: through her design studio, she also makes and sells jewellery, wine racks, benches, chaises longues and planters – all of which double as discrete sculptures.
