ScanLAB Projects is a pioneering creative practice, led by artists/architects/technologists Matthew Shaw and William Trossell. Shaw and Trossell share a common passion for highly crafted making and storytelling that manifests itself in their digital and physical works.
For this year’s Cure3, ScanLAB Projects has created Stamukha, a cast replica made from the 3D LiDAR scan of an extremely rare and infrequently studied piece of sea ice. The full title of the work includes the “identifier name”, its co-ordinates when they measured it and its scale. This colossal ice floe would have become beached in a shallow Siberian river estuary during the summer months. When the river waters flowed over the ice, they sculpted its surface and froze in sediments, giving it an uncharacteristic brown hue. This makes Stamukha appear strangely terrestrial once they rejoin the Arctic ice pack and drift hundreds of miles further north amongst the pure blue-white landscape of frozen sea ice. Using 3D scanning technology, this was one of 26 ice floes documented by the award-winning creative studio, during an expedition to Norway, which aimed to deepen our understanding of the threats faced by this fragile region.
