An Out-of-Focus Scan – Part 2
This publication is part of the PhD research ‘Blurry Scanning’, conducted by Anton Cotteleer at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp – within the research groups Body and Material Reinvented and Thinking Tools – and at ARIA / UAntwerp.
“The phantom statute of the unsharp, its relationship to our memories, its intimate character and openness for interpretation is what attracts Cotteleer in the blurry. After investigating the meaning of the blurry and the sharp within photography, he looked as a sculptor how the sharp and unsharp relate to sculpture. In this he developed a well-founded personal vision about ‘the blurry’ or the unsharp.”
