‘Metro’ is a journey, beginning outside and moving inwards

Metro is Chris Coleman's every day commute on the Denver Light Rail, recorded using a handheld 3D scanning device and a laptop. The fragmentation and gaps in the data are defined by the physical bumps, speed, and curves in the journeys affecting Chris' hand while scanning.

Sometimes enveloping and sometimes sparse and shattered, time produces forward motion and simplification. It is documentation of a physical space, captured millimeter accurate coordinates, colors and varied textures. Several real journeys have been digitally distilled to become a beautifully abstracted experience, not unlike to the disconnection one has while riding public transport.
