Djinn Loci’s work uses laser scanning to tell a story about a place which wouldn’t otherwise be clearly visible to the naked eye of its observers. Unlike a conventional camera which captures external light, a laser scanner relies on a certain density of captured points to bring shape to its subject. Laser scanning allows the capture of a three-dimensional moment in time which can be revisited whenever one chooses.
Darkness and shadow represent the absence of information, while data points act as sources of light - the more surface data captured, the brighter the area. While the artist’s images bring more technical information to light about a setting, much more than the setting itself is often being captured.
