The computer malfunction of which the cause cannot be determined. The origin of Scamorphose is the induced malfunction of the computer, which has unparalleled accuracy. The girl who faces left is the same person as the one who faces right, but actually during the photo shoot, she remained facing left and never turned to face right. However, when the scanner moves from left to right as she also moves toward left while facing left, the image of right-facing girl, who does not exist in reality, appears. The cause of this malfunction has not yet been resolved (Work 006). Digital scanners assume that the subject being scanned does not move. However, if the subject moves during scanning … strange images appear. “This is me different from usual me”, but this is also “real me” that has not been touched up by CG or digital processing at all. “What is the real thing?” “Isn’t this visible world the only real world?” Scamorphose is a digital image that is produced in real time faithfully, which “questions the true nature of the real existence.” (It is collaborative work with Dr. Takayuki Fujimoto, Toyo University professor and media scholar)
