About the speakers

Chris Cornish

With a practice underpinned by a history of technology Chris Cornish utilizes apparatus such as the camera and computer to explore a singular view of the world. Carefully exploring the interstices occurring between seemingly incompatible media, Cornish’s work seeks to lift information, objects, and surroundings from virtual or historical sources, and transform them to ‘real’ space, recast as sculpture, photography, and film. Alongside his art practise Cornish runs a commercial 3D scanning service focused upon the creative use of 3D capture technology. Clients include contemporary artists, art fabricators, architects and the film and games industries.
