Final Project Research

For my final project for Photo III, I am working with my scanner to attempt to take pictures with it through the means of a camera obscura and a modified scanner.  My interest lies in the interest of combining new technology with the oldest known camera.  I am interested in creating photographs without the use of what everyone knows to be a conventional camera.  I am also interested in capturing images from film and videos, in an attempt to capture a moment in time that has already been captured, and then reassembled into a moment that can be viewed an infinite amount of times, through an infinite amount of devices.
A few artists and things that have inspired me, or stuck with me while I was thinking about this theme for my project were Hiroshi Sugimoto who captures images via long exposures of movie theatres, seascapes, and architectural buildings.  Although he uses a conventional camera, the images that are captured I find quite engaging and it is based on a similar work style in thematic and possibly visual aspects.  Another source of inspiration that I found helpful when thinking about my work is Idris Khan.  With his use of appropriation in some works and layering in most, the aesthetic qualities are visually compelling, but also aid in the ideas of using appropriation from different sources.  Another source of inspiration that is behind a lot of what I do is Gordon Matta-Clark. I find him to be a very compelling figure in the field of art, and the images that are provided as documentation of his works are very interesting to me.  Oh and also Simon Starling.

I have Links below to information about the artists mentioned and also the technical aspects of my project.
