ScanLAB collaborate with Vivienne Westwood
4 November 2014
ScanLAB, the studio of Bartlett School of Architecture alumni Matthew Shaw and William Trossell, has worked with fashion brand Vivienne Westwood to produce the first fashion shoot created with 3D laser scanners instead of cameras.
The project was a collaboration with Brigitte Stepputtis, head of couture at Vivienne Westwood, and the images were created for an exhibition held in London during the summer. ScanLab used an advanced terrestrial laser scanner to digitise both the models and the location to create high-resolution "point clouds" of data. The project highlights the creative uses for 3D scanning, which ScanLAB's Matthew Shaw says is an emerging visual medium comparable to the early days of photography.
