Real Imaginary Objects

Video artist Daniel Crooks endeavors to employ time as a physical material in his artistic work, and to transcend the monitor screen to enter the domain of three-dimensional physical sculpture. As artist-in-residence at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Daniel Crooks carried on this effort with an innovative 3-D camera that makes it possible to capture sequences of cross-sections of a physical space at a very high rate of image frequency, and to recompile the 2-D images in the form of a 3-D model for which a specially designed laser tracking system was developed to generate the necessary data.
