Noise: Error In The Void - ScanLAB - Surface Gallery - London

As our ability to encode, scan, encapsulate, distil and record our environment accelerates, we risk mistaking detail for truth and complexity for meaning. ScanLAB have used sophisticated LIDAR devices to "capture" spaces, topographies and events producing tremendously seductive moving images. I hesitate to use either the words "film" or "video" as the point being made here would seem to demand another term, one which contained the tacit warning that despite the trappings of instrumental accuracy (reinforced by a lifetime of cinematic depictions of the precision tools of science and warfare) that what we are watching is encrusted with exquisite error: surface ruptures, temporal glitches, spacial disjunction. Surface Gallery are presenting an installed version of this document for view by appointment. Rarely is corruption made quite so intriguing. Until May the 15th.
