Using LiDAR* technology traditionally used by architects to measure three-dimensional distances within buildings I attempt to explore and create my memories both old and new. Within this series of work, I have revisited places with deep personal significance from my childhood through the creation of 3D environments I can explore within virtual and augmented reality. I invite you to join me on a trip through my childhood memories through my own eyes and personal experiences that have led me to where I am now. During this project I wanted to be able to connect with places again, during my experiences of watching videos recorded by family when I was younger, I have always struggled with the recollection of important memories from my childhood whether it be family photos or videos. I never really felt like I was able to recollect the memory space and environment clearly, however as technology has become more powerful and accessible, I’m able to experiment with recreating places within a 3D world. Using technology in my work allows me to connect with my past in a much more immersive and personal way. * a method for determining ranges (variable distance) by targeting an object or a surface with a laser and measuring the time for the reflected light to return to the receiver. It can also be used to make digital 3-D representations of areas
