The project‘s perspective on the forest and its materials and shapes is similar to contemporary methods of archeology. Here, 3D-scanning techniques are used to preserve precious archaeologic artifacts. By 3D-scanning, the unique quality of the archaeologic shall be preserved and made transportable. But even though 3D-Scanning tries to be as »realistic« as possible, a 3d-scan will always transform the object into a different, digital materiality. As a second step, the pieces were re-transferred into materiality by using a 3D-printing technique.
