50.000 Scans is part of an ongoing project called “Scanning Cinema” that explores the physical action of scanning moving images. This video is made entirely out of scans. A self-thought manual scanning process generates the shifts between them. Using a flatbed-scanner and a computer screen, as a newly combined medium, the images are wrapped into one single frame. These scans are then assembled into an animated film.
50.000 Scans focuses on how the choreography of a human body functions in the scanned reality. It explores this scanned dimension and holds it against the historical birth of film and the registration of movement through the medium of photography.
The sound is adapted to the same scan-process as the images.
