Peter Weibel shows the new, digitally distorted world, in which the relationship of data and things replaces the classical relationship of words and objects. Already in the early 1990s, as in his first exhibition Copyleft at the Artelier, Weibel created scanned objects by sawing up and rebuilding everyday objects. In 1996, in his second exhibition Die Symbolzeit ist abgelaufen, he cut the Graz clock tower into scanlines and reassembled it, resembling a distorted television image. Media properties were transferred back into the world of objects. In this way, Weibel was already anticipating the principles of 3D printing. The Scanned Sculptures are based on 3D models freely available on the Internet, digital readymades that were deformed along their scan or print lines.
