How can the practice of photogrammetric 3D modeling connect with visually oriented social media?
I love the look of these files. An in between moment, an artifact in the middle of a pipeline between PhotoScan's compositing and a 3D graphics implementation. But in this moment they leave so much to the imagination. What object is represented? Ironic that a texture map exploded like this appears to so closely resemble countries plucked from their maps, decontextualized and arranged into new categorizations. What if there were an app like Instagram that gave it's users the ability to capture a moment from a variety of perspectives? Arranged like a moodboard, each post could include a variety of photos that capture different angles, icons, and characters in a scene. You could attach a field recording, or embed the song you were listening to. Give your viewers a deeper impression of the moment you're sharing, but also arranged cryptically, like these photogrammetry texture exports, in a way that encourages imagination.
