The Portal: vegetal/digital

Latrobe Regional Gallery, The Portal, Ground Floor

Alison Bennett considers Australian native flowers as celestial encounters in a series of 3D point-clouds, to consider vegetal thinking, digital gardening and post-human neuroqueer phenomenology. Working in expanded photography, Bennett has used photogrammetry, a technique for generating 3D models from a large set of photographs taken from all angles of the specimen. Alison presents a video version of the work as part of The Portal screening program.
