A Machine’s Perception handles
Finally after a couple of years of experimentation the first outcome is ready to be presented (and to be bought).
‘A Machine’s Perception’ door handles. Alexander Pelikan created a series of cutting edge door handles by controlling both possibilities and shortcomings of machines. The exploring of errors in a 3D scan has led to the visualization of a scanner’s perception. With ‘A Machine’s Perception’ door handles, a flawed Virtual Reality became real and tangible. Developed in partnership with: research laboratory TNO Eindhoven and Studio Ludens. 3D printed in steel by i.materialise. A 3D scan is seemingly accurate but indeed it is very much subject to coincidence (quantum effects of the laser, processing software thresholds funny quirks of the processing algorithms).
” A scanner is only a human, in other words: machines are not as perfect as we see them.” With the project ‘A Machine’s Perception’ Alexander Pelikan from studio PeLiDesign goes beyond the fringes of digital creation. To create, he exploits digital imperfection of objects (up until now, handles – more objects will follow…suggestions appreciated)
