Digital Specimens: Pointcloudfallout

2015. HD video, 10'35'', color, sound. Voice-over by Chloe Rossetti and David Gould. Excerpt.

Friends of Interpretable Objects is a hybrid between exhibition and installation, accompanied by discussions with invited guests and/or audio interviews displayed in tablet devices and reclining seats.

In Digital Specimens: Pointcloudfallout an offscreen dialog, set in the near-future, unfolds on the politics of scanning in 3-D artifacts and monuments. Amidst the consequences of climate change and war, the two characters discuss how digital copies unsettle repatriation claims and colonial tensions under the pretext of “digital conservation.
