Australia boulder 3D laser scan video

When I first saw the results of the scanning I was quite unprepared for what I saw. It is quite hard to describe, but I can say it was not like looking at a conventional digital image. What I had previously always seen from my perspective as a climber, I could now see from one position removed.

When the photographer Gaspard-Felix Tournachon took the first aerial photographs of Paris, he described it as though he were experiencing an existential free-fall. My first view of a 3D scan of Clodgy produced a similar feeling of disorientation. The experience felt immersive and visceral. The overall sensation was of a bodily experience rather than a visual one.
