Does 3D Scanning Capture Life- Am I Out Of a Job?

I am going to feature this artist in the book I am writing titled 3D Technology in Fine Art and Craft. I love the work of Sophia Kahn.   I especially like her quote near the end of the video.

“I work with all of this imagery not because I want to be morbid, but because I am interested in exploring the ways that technology can fail to capture life, and what the poetics of that failure might look like. We live in a world were we are so bombarded with claims for all seeing, all powerful, imaging technologies. It is my belief that as artists destabilizing those, through poetics… might actually prove to be the strongest weapon that we have.”
