Scanart: A Digital Artifact Recontextualization

Scanart: A Digital Artifact Recontexualization creates a critical approach to how digital artifacts are treated and used, in that receiving the manufactured message of static meaning does not produce successful digital artifacts, nor does it allow for the release of the full potential of effects that result when recontextualizing the artifact. The project explores the question of how to produce meaningful content through the usage of the home office scanner as a facilitator of personal expression through recontextualizing its intended meaning. In order to produce a work that studies several different theoretical contexts and techniques, the delivery of this exploration is divided into several seperate components, allowing for a multitude of interpretations in the extraction of personal meaning by exploring the results of the different creative processes involved in the project's production.
