Maitha Demithan

Maitha Demithan

Maitha uses scanography together with her knowledge of painting and photography to document intense moments of encounter and vividly capture three-dimensional moments in a two-dimensional plane. In her pieces, she scans figures in parts and then reconstructs the images digitally. The composite result is both an objective and mechanical record of the figures but also through pose, body language and particular scan quality, it includes an emotional statement.
