Erosion Room

This image is made from a series of scans of a plaster cast of sculpted sand then morphed into this plaster like image and virtual space using photoshop.

It could be:
-projected on a wall
-printed on paper, scrim, wallpaper
-sculpted, flocked, braille-like, laser cut
-responsive to data
-affected by wind, breath, water, heat, sand, touch
-something I haven't thought of yet

It might be:
-a 22 foot long wall
-made available on SecondLife or other alternate virtual world
-large format print series
-part of a book, physical or virtual
-derived from a graph of actual erosion patterns or measurement
-light sculpture
-set to music

I want to make animation to see what the changing states and iterations evoke.

The day I made this was a day of casting my own erosions experimenting with the plaster before trying it at the bottom of the dunes. Its a big climb with stuff. And a close look at the sand.
