Remains is an ongoing project that focuses on nature and the tradition of landscape painting. Extremely precise laser scanners are used to capture natural landscapes in high resolution, which leads to complex digital renderings on large-format archival paper. The combination of highly detailed geometric reconstructions and the imperfections of the 3D scans produce hybrid formations that are somewhere between the real and the artificial. While they recreate similar conditions to the plein-air painting of the late nineteenth century, these natural landscapes are actually observed and analyzed by extensive technological devices and repurposed through new forms of visual synthesis.
