"Ghost Shelter 17 displays a variety of significant post-industrial structures in various states of ruin, rendered as isolated islands, evoking the 'islands of memory' of Andrei Tarkovsky's1972 film Solaris. Here, the 3D scans and renderings become models of memory, juxtaposing virtual and actual footage, while the phenomenality of space and time disclose themselves within the subjectivity of the seemingly 'objective' reality of the scan.
