Building an Art Biennale: working with Tate's collections

A series of ten minute talks took place throughout the week, each considering a different work on display at Tate Modern.

Ian Dawson made 3D scans of several works, including Takamatsu’s Oneness of Concrete, the focus of his 10 minute talk (see the video below). Dawson’s interest lies in the materiality of the medium of 3D print, including through experimental scanning of broken spaces and surfaces, as in his Taplow House project (with Louisa Minkin), where interiors and discarded objects from a derelict South London housing estate were scanned and printed prior to demolition. Dawson has worked with other artists on 3D projects such as one that culminated in the exhibition The Wanderer’s Nightsong II (2005), where he acted as artist, curator and technician, ‘translating the work of each artist via 3d scanning and printing into copies of themselves—asking questions of mediation, re-mediation, authorship and originality.’
