Matt is co-founder of ScanLAB Projects, the pioneering design and technology studio based in London.
ScanLAB specialise in pointcloud visualisation and creative uses of 3D data capture. They use all forms of 3D scanning, especially LIDAR, to digitise the world, transforming temporary moments and spaces into compelling permanent experiences, images and film. They design online environments, immersive installations and objects.
Founded in 2010, the practice has worked with leading architects, broadcasters, scientists and curators from across the world. ScanLAB operate from concept, through on location scanning, to delivered product. Our work has featured in major TV documentaries and cinema screenings, been widely published and exhibited internationally.
Matt's background is in architecture, digital fabrication and speculation about digital cities of the future. Over the last 10 years he’s been turning the relentless, machinic eye of the 3D scanner on anything and everything – from giant mirrored sculptures, smoke, mirror, Arctic ice floes, Roman Sewers to graceful dancers.
The results of this experimental use of LIDAR are award winning, visually stunning projects that push the boundaries of what is 'scanable'. By focusing on the creative potential of the tools they are pushing it's commercial boundaries too. The practice regularly consult on the future of 3D acquisition for many of the world leading technology companies and media companies.
