When participants with iPhones move through the landscape, the movement generates from GPS data a stereo-lithographic sculpture produced from a performative sculpture. Through a process of transcoding, iForm explores the construction and perception of time-based events as a means of examining the ability of a static object to encapsulate temporalspatial information. iForm aims to question our relationship with physical objects by proposing a modality for representation in which the linear codex of time-based perception is challenged.

The project uses the iPhone app Comob that was developed in a joint research project between the Edinburgh College of Art, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Lancaster.
