Slit scan of a rotating plane;
Slit-scan camera images have been done in multiple forms in the past century
(I.E. http://www.flong.com/texts/lists/slit_scan/ an informal review),
The camera used to make this image was created from an Nikon film camera body & desktop scanner, utilizing the sensor (4000x1) & the electronics of the scanner. Software was rewritten to remove unneeded parts (scanner motor) and adjust for infinite paper size. The subject was rotated on a large (46") lazy-susan at approximately 1 rev per min. Two complete revolutions are show in in the picture.
This image is part of a larger body of on going creation of slit-scan works.
