Artist exploring 3D scanning, computer vision and the still-life tradition. 

David Lisser is a UK based artist whose work utilises 3D scanning tools to consider how the natural world is simulated via digital interfaces, and the ways that computer vision can lead to new interpretations of what we see.
His work comprises of sculptures, digital renders and short videos that focus on digital simulation and the desire to reproduce physical experience, whether that be through photogrammetry and 3D scanning, or ‘artificial’ life and cellular agriculture.
