David Lisser is an artist exploring digital and physical simulation, with a focus on 3D scanning and cultured-meat technologies. He makes sculptures, digital renders and short videos that focus on technology, simulation and food. David has a strong interest in the desire to reproduce physical experience, whether that be through photogrammetry and 3D scanning, or ‘artificial’ life and cellular agriculture. In recent years, his work has centred on the technology of cultured-meat, using it as a lens to examine the relationship between simulation, nature, consumption and hope.
When archaeologists examine artefacts, two of the most illuminating subjects they can uncover are the food a society ate, and the technology it used. Food and technology is embedded in ritual, economy, survival and culture - so much information can be extrapolated from a few choice items. In that sense, the artist considers his work to act as artefacts; fragments from potential futures that may point to the kind of society we are becoming.
