“Guillotine Room” is a new video work created using 3D scanning technology that translates physical substances into virtual ones, such as polygon structures and point cloud systems (a series of data points in space). As well as other imagery, this piece features a guillotine blade that continually slices through the air. The guillotine is a practical and symbolic device designed to carry out efficient executions. Arguably the most symbolic object of the French Revolution, it was even wielded by ordinary citizens for the democratic social system.
