This piece is created in memory of Nike of Samothrace
at Musée du Louvre
in Paris. Although the museum has been closed since mid-March, images are still being uploaded of the sculpture on Instagram. From isolation, the public is sharing images in remembrance of the public space (and art) we have been so drastically isolated from this spring. These images have been joint through photogrammetry—a process used for three-dimensional scanning—with which the public collectively build up a digital paraphrase of the original sculpture.
Through sculptural pieces, architectural spaces, exhibitions, texts and films, Mikaela Steby Stenfalk reflects upon reproduction and archival processes in the age of the internet, as well as our growing relationship to digital landscapes and the ties to public life. Mikaela holds a double-diploma in Architecture from KTH Royal Institute of Technology
(SE) and Man & Communication from Design Academy Eindhoven
