The second Digital Art History Research Group (#DAHRG) workshop of 2017/18 will be delivered by Thomas Flynn (Cultural Heritage Lead, Sketchfab) on Thursday 16 November.
Booking is essential and you must email Fern to confirm your attendance.
In this two-hour lunchtime session, Thomas will take us on a tour of the Somerset House courtyard to collect some shots of architectural features to create 3D models with. We will then process these using PhotoScan Pro to allow us to create something that we can upload to the Sketchfab site. In addition to this practical demo, Thomas will take us through the annotation, audio, and VR functionality in Sketchfab and share how some institutions / projects are using 3D in this way to enhance engagement with content.
Tom began work in 3D at the British Museum, helping establish a 3D capture and sharing programme that continues to this day. He is co-founder of a small ed-tech company Museum in a Box which is exploring the re-use of 3D, image and audio collections within a classroom context. Tom currently leads cultural and non-profit partnerships at Sketchfab Inc., highlighting best practice in sharing 3D data with audiences worldwide and delivering training for cultural sector staff in how to capture 3D scans of artifacts using simple digital photography. You can see his 3D work on Sketchfab here, find out more about his work on his website or follow him on twitter.
