Originally scanned at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the fauna collection includes 3-D printed objects and moving images. The 3-D prints carry sediment from the bayou. Similar to urns, they hold the remains of an ecosystem. Through the scanning software, the moving images become abstracted, plasticized. These digital objects inhabit a virtual space far removed from the original’s habitat.
