Scanning Department Highlights

New york based artist Meg Hitchcock creates stunning text based drawings utilizing letters taken from Holy books that are reconstructed to produce disparate sacred writings.  She recently scanned one of her pieces, “Milk and Honey“, and posted some wonderful feedback on her blog:

I got this piece scanned last week at Laumont Labs in Manhattan. They have the only large-scale scanner in the city, and WOW is it amazing. The detail it’s able to capture is so high that if the piece is printed on high quality paper, the visual effect looks exactly like the original. Not that I’m planning to make prints of my texts at this time, but it’s nice to have the option in the future. I’m really happy to have found Laumont, as they’re great to work with.

I’ve written about this piece before, so I won’t go into it too much. It’s called ‘Milk and Honey’, and I cut the letters from the Bhagavad Gita to create ‘Michael Row the Boat Ashore’. And now I’m here to tell you that Michael, he finally made it to the other side, where he found milk, honey, and Laumont Labs waiting for him with open arms and a world-class scanner.
