The Time Space Scanner is a project for scanning living and dying organic matter that prioritizes neither time nor space but rather blends them to delve into the experience of memory, being and change. The Time Space Scanner uses a 2D flatbed scanner programmed to scan spatially random small samples at regular intervals, collecting 25,000 to 50,000 images over a period of 3-5 days. These micro captures are then reassembled and animated in real-time in a constantly changing mixture of rhythmic time and space. Any frame of the animation contains pixels drawn from multiple times and locations.
