I think it is interesting how we can use certain objects in a different way or in a different context to explore new opportunities. For some time I’ve had an old scanner lying around at home and I really wanted to do something with it. At one point I started wondering if the scanner could be modified into some kind of camera. I tried it out and it worked. The scanner opened up new ways of taking photos. The scanner allows you to bend objects into new shapes and multiply objects without editing.

The scanner is build upon the principles of the camera obscura. I used a magnifying glass as a lens and used the scanner to capture the photo onto the computer. All the photos are taken by me without any editing.
