Kurt Hoerbst has presented a project of human mapping of the city entitled
Venetians Scan. As a matter of fact, Hoerbst has created a special machinery
that can scan at a photographic level the peopleâ??s bodies. The final
image is the result of a matching of 15shots which, after a digital elaboration,
give a life-size picture with high realism of the subject. The artist will
create a sort of living map of Venice through a series of pictures involving
the inhabitants of this city.
Born in Austria in 1972.
Having been originally educated in

St. PÃ¶lten University of Applied Sciences.
Publisher of three books and
