Monumental Haptic

Assaf Shaham, American Dream (ongoing project)

Assaf Shaham's American Dream series has been created using a flatbed scanner to record a number of printed images that depict monumental structures and buildings. The digitally recorded images in this instance have been 'monumentalized' further by intervening during the scanning process. Here the digital elongation is instigated by the hand in so much as the printed artifact (situated on the scanning bed) is momentarily moved whilst the recording is in progress.
