ARTIST | SOPHIE KAHN

Sophie Kahn is a digital artist and sculptor, whose work addresses technology’s failure to capture the unstable human body. Her work investigates the complexity, and the poetics, of capturing the female-identified body in the digital age.

She uses a 3D laser scanner to create sculptures, prints, video, and VR/AR artworks. This scanner was never designed to capture the human body in motion--when confronted with a moving form, the machine receives conflicting spatial coordinates and generates incomplete images. Kahn converts this deliberately damaged data into the form of prints, videos, and hand-painted, 3D-printed sculptures. Her fragmented forms draw inspiration from funereal and memorial sculpture and can read as faux-historical forgeries and/or contemporary relics.
