The project »Replay (pyramid)« is based on an experiment in which errors and inaccuracies of 3D modeling techniques lead to the generative production of new forms.
The starting point of the experiment is a pyramid designed on the computer, produced with the help of a 3D printer and then reproduced in repeated sequence via 3D scanning and 3D printing. In this cycle of translation processes, fundamental features of the technologies used are reproduced and amplified. Both the grooves in the surface of the objects characteristic of 3D printing as well as misinterpreted scan data lead to significant changes in the original shape. The supposedly exact duplicate develops into hybrid, independent objects that are neither clearly derived from the physical, nor from the digital world.
