Ghost Cell

Animated short film

Antoine DELACHARLERY [France]


Using 3D laser scans and photogrammetry, a technique that combines multiple photos to create accurate 3D models, the artist constructs an image of Paris with wireframes. Observed inside this structure, human beings start to look like swarming life under a microscope, and the entire city itself resembles a single organism. A documentary of life in the city depicted in a scientific but also dreamlike way.
