Sophie Kahn was born in London and received a BA in fine art/art history from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Sophie explains her work by saying, “Like photographs, my prints and sculpture are made from life; however, they are produced not with film or a camera but with a laser scanner and 3d imaging software. The scanner projects a beam of laser light over the body, which is recorded by a video camera in the handset. The video camera records the beam’s changing contours, and the scanner software generates from them a 3d computer model of the scanned form.”
