Surface Scratch is an animated hallucination on the historical use, misuse & failure of infrastructure within Dansey Place - an unassuming thoroughfare in London’s China Town.
The project is the first in a series exploring the materiality and narrative potential of emerging image making processes. The Project makes extensive use of a photogrammetry like process to provide the base architectural model. In a normal photogrammetry workflow there is extensive clean up is required in order to correct unwanted and inaccurate geometry. Here however those unwanted digital artefacts are left as they are in order to provide the basic scenery and narrative backdrop to the project.
