German artist Till Koeeneker created these full-size portraits of her closest friends and family members with an ordinary desktop scanner. Each one of these scanner portraits gets up close and personal, capturing every wrinkle and stray hair.
But somewhere in the process of collapsing 3D to 2D, limbs and faces are distorted just enough to look slightly off. Limbs seem to be just a little too long, faces too thin. Bodies float in featureless black space, trapped behind a glass pane.
The following image gives a sense of the detail captured in a full-sized scan.
