Module 10 | Digitizing 3D Collections for Museums
Description: Last year, the world art museums dropped 77% in attendance. At most one can see 5% of a fashion collection in a museum display and it can take years to see a specific piece. This fact should remind us we need alternatives and that we can show the world our collection if we can get it on a digital platform. Documenting historical fashion with existing softwares has been my passion and in the last year we have created a VR Fashion Museum. The Fashion Innovation Centre is creating valuable documentation of museum assets for the future. Involving students, business and community to create the digital assets. This is a new alternative of showing these garments or other historical assets in Virtual Reality, mobile and Augmented Reality. Once you have those assets you can use them in multiple ways for promotion, documentation and even schooling. Eventually, in the future these same people, will come to the museums again to see the real thing.
