Oliver Laric is based in Berlin. Encompassing objects, videos and sculptures, Laric’s work spans the liminal spaces between the past and the present, the authentic and the inauthentic, the original and its subsequent reflections and reconfigurations. His work explores the productive potential of the copy, the bootleg and the remix, and examine their role in the formation of both historic and contemporary image cultures. He has had recent solo exhibitions at MIT List Visual Arts Centre, Cambridge MA (2013) and Skulpturhalle Basel, Basel (2011).

Laric’s commission uses the latest digital scanning methods to render some of Lincoln’s most treasured and historic sculptures in highly-detailed 3D. More than 50 objects from The Collection and Usher Gallery have been scanned and put online at www.lincoln3dscans.co.uk. The 360° images, which can be downloaded for free without copyright restrictions, can be used by anyone including artists, researchers, schools and academics from around the world. Reincarnations of the initial data will continue to develop as it continuously travels and gets used and reused, developing into new projects in and outside of the art world.

The first scans include a 2nd century bust of Greek mythological figure Ariadne, Roman tombstones, medieval baptismal fonts, part of the pelvis bone from Anglo-Saxon remains, and an ancient mosaic. Laric plans to use a variety of the 3D images to create a unique collage sculpture for permanent display at The Collection, and he will add further scans to the site over time.
