ARH 333P/CLA 226 - Spring 2019 3D Models


Animating Antiquity is a student-generated curatorial project that provides a multifaceted contextualization of selected artworks in the Lowe Art Museum’s Antiquities Gallery. Through the use of digital technologies—3-D modeling and printing—this project aims to reinsert these objects into their original settings and reanimate their tactility and functionality, forming new modes of interaction with artworks in the space of the museum and the virtual realm. Students are engaged in activated, museum-based learning through the creation of 3-D models of the Lowe’s ancient artworks, the compilation of art historical dossiers contextualizing the objects, the printing of 3-D models, and the formulation of interactive activities with the printed models for visitors to the Lowe. animatingantiquity.n...
