3D image modelling of cultural objects in the V&A Museum Seminar

James Stevenson and Carlos Jimenez: V&A

The mission of the V&A is to be the world’s leading museum of art and design and to enrich people’s lives by promoting knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the designed world.

The strategic objectives are to provide access to the museum collections and services for diverse audiences, now and in the future, to be acknowledged and respected as the world’s leading museum of art and design and to promote, support and develop the UK creative economy by inspiring designers and makers.

The V&A Photographic Studio has been developing its portfolio of imaging services for the museum into 3D image modelling. It believes that there is great opportunity for new ways of presenting cultural heritage collections to the visiting public and also as an aid for scholars and professionals working in the sector.

James and Carlos from the V&A Photographic Studio will demonstrate their approach to making models of cultural objects and illustrate the challenges still existing in this medium and will also show the range of models they have made and welcome criticism and comments on their potential value to cultural heritage.
