    • January 27th: Technical Workshop 3: Data Applications in Cultural Heritage Presenters: Harry Abramson, Direct Dimensions, Owings Mills, Maryland http://www.dirdim.com/ While 3D digitization projects can certainly add to your organization’s offerings, it is important to define whether 3D digitization technology meets your museum’s goals and applicability, as well as the resources you are able to dedicate to such projects. Digital Archiving of Physical Objects Ghost (1990), Rachel Whiteread | National Gallery of Art Online Collections - British Museum | SketchFab - Diplomatic Reception Rooms Virtual Tour | State Department - Byzantine Seals | Dumbarton Oaks - Tools and frameworks available SketchFab - Free to low cost, universally accessible, and robust 3DHeritage Online Presenter (3DHOP) Voyager (offered by the Smithsonian) Metaverse Open Source Distribution Neil Armstrong Space Suit | Smithsonian Open Access Object Provenance, Process Research, and Analysis Back I, II, III, and IV (1900s), Henri Matisse | MoMA; The Art Institute of Chicago - Plaster casts that were each scanned at a high resolution and then visitors to an online exhibit were able to compare these scans. Digital Restoration - Portrait Statue of Caligula | Virginia Museum of Fine Arts - Macedonian Monument | United States Naval Academy - Deerfield Soldier (PDF) Mounts and Crate Design White Negress (1923), Constantin Brancusi | Philadelphia Museum of Art Recommended Reading: Wachowiak, M.J., and Karas, B.V. (2009). 3D Scanning and Replication for Museum and Cultural Heritage Applications. JAIC 48: 141-158. Immersive Display AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality) - Metaverse - Artist Terry Kilby scans the now-removed Robert E. Lee Monument - SketchFab - 3DHOP - Voyager Exhibition Copies - Mace of the Republic | House of Representatives - Scanned using a FARO Laser Scan Arm (https://www.faro.com/en) - Assyrian Relief | British Museum - This particular example is actually done by a regular visitor to the museum, which might give insight into the plausibility to do these kinds of projects. Promotions, Engagement, Product Development - Amun Re | Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania - Neil Armstrong Space Suit | Smithsonian Open Access Accessibility - Native American Projectile Points Scanners - FARO - Artec3D

    • January 20th Toolkit: Technical Workshop 2: Image Based Approaches… Presenters: Carla Schroer and Marlin Lum, Cultural Heritage Imaging, San Francisco, CA Cultural Heritage Imaging | carla@c-h-i.org | marlin@c-h-i.org Connect with Cultural Heritage Imaging: Facebook | Flickr | Vimeo | Blog Cultural Heritage Imaging’s free Capture Guide and videos (including RTIViewer, RTIBuilder, and order an RTI Kit) Check out their Forum page! Imaging 3D Objects and Sites Stitched images: Combining multiple photographic images with overlapping fields of view to produce a panorama or a high-resolution image - Advantages: Inexpensive; many available software tools; can convey more information than single photos - Disadvantages: Distortion and perspective issues; no geometry; no measurement; some formats are proprietary Examples: - Panorama | Golden Gate Bridge - 360-degree product view with B&H Photo Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI): Using a fixed camera position, takes multiple images illuminated from different known light positions and are synthesized into a single RTI image Can be relatively inexpensive, done with a camera and a tripod (watch video example below) Examples: Egyptian scarab, Eton College Myers Collection Performing Reflectance Transformation Imaging, CHI Imaging (Video) Photogrammetry: Create a 3D digital surface that replicates the actual subject as closely as possible, in shape and color CHI Photogrammetry - This page has links to material, and instructional videos. Examples: - SketchFab provides many examples of what photogrammetry looks like - Global Digital Heritage’s use of photogrammetry with the Sharjah Archaeology Authority Agisoft Metashape (Recommended) Scientific imaging and long-term preservation CHI Digital Lab Notebook Software available through link above, collect and manage data about digital representation processes (capture setup, location, stakeholders, documents, image sequence capture, processing, preparation of data for archive, etc.) Things to consider: What is necessary for your organization? What are the goals of the museum and how do these tools align with the values and interests of the organization? Is the organization able to invest time and even resources into projects like this?

    • January 13th Toolkit: Technical Workshop 1: How to Use Digital Assets Presenter: Roz McNulty, CLO 3D Designer, Consultant, and Online Course Teacher, MOTIF.org, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada roz@fashionic.ca Fashion Innovation Centre | VR Fashion Museum Instagram LinkedIn: Roz McNulty Software - CLO | 3D Fashion Design Software - 3DLOOK | Virtual try-on - Shape Spark | Virtual exhibitions and museums (starting at $19/month) - Sketchfab | VR & 3D for Cultural Heritage (basic plan starts at $0 with 10 uploads per month) Motif, provides online courses and events related to apparel Museums Online - We Wear Culture | Google - The Queen and The Crown at the Brooklyn Museum - Fashion Innovation Centre | VR Fashion Museum - Cuseum App - This app available on the Apple Store provides an example of what at-home AR experiences look like. - Smithsonian | 3D Digitization Helpful Articles - Museum Next | How Are Museums Putting the AR in Arts and Culture, Manuel Charr (06 March 2021) - This article discusses the slow transition into AR experiences, and specifically contactless platforms within the museum, especially in light of the pandemic. One example that Charr mentions is the art exhibit, Interplay: Art Play for All at the Akron Art Museum in Ohio. Here, visitors were able to scan a QR code next to pieces of art in order to interact with them digitally. - Museum Next | How Museums are using Augmented Reality, Charlotte Coates (17 July 2021) - This article describes more about AR experiences within museums, using a smartphone or a tablet, and/or an app. - Beaconstac | QR Codes for Museums: Improve Visitor Experience, Apoorva Hegde (last updated 7 December 2021) - This article talks about the use of QR codes in museums. QR code generators are free online but more consolidated workflows for multiple codes may have some pricing. Here is just one of many QR code generators: Flowcode - Aniwaa | 3D printing and 3D scanning for archaeology and museums (last updated 5 August 2021) - While the presentation didn’t mention 3D printing, this article can be useful in learning about 3D scanning for archival purposes in archaeological collections but can help inform historical collections as well!
