Interactive Installation, 2006
Interface Cultures

Visitors to the installation can use a scanner and a printer to create their very own object-collage. The printed-out image of it is then loaded into a tin can that the visitor can take home as a souvenir. In this way, a momentary, ephemeral experience during a visit to an exhibit can be preserved for all time. Whoever decides to open the can and confront these memories can do so, but the image is then subjected to external influences of weathering, degradation and decay.

sCANNED OBJECTs was shown at the Ars Electronica Festival 2006.
