The Resting Satyr
Augmented Reality in the Eskenazi Museum
This project resulted in the creation of an augmented reality application for the Eskenazi Museum. In May 2018, this project was presented at the Rome Art History Network: Digital Art History Conference held at the Biblioteca Angelica and the American Academy in Rome.
The Antikythera Mechanism
Predicting Eclipses in the 1st Century AD
This project sought to construct a digital 3D model of the Antikythera Mechanism, load that model into a software that calculates the date and position of solar and lunar eclipses (Stellarium), and determine specific locations where the eclipses would have been visible in antiquity.
Digital Roman Portrait Project
Creating an Museum Online Catalog
This project sought to create an online catalog for Roman portraits in the Eskenazi Museum of Art. We cataloged over 30 Roman portraits digitally. This project was handed off to the development staff at the museum after the creation of the 3D models. The website will be online in the next few years.
VWHL Project: The Uffizi Digitization Project
The Virtual World Heritage Laboratory (VWHL), based in in the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, in collaboration with partners at the Politecnico di Milano and the University of Florence is digitizing in 3D digitization the complete collection of Greek and Roman sculpture in the Uffizi, Pitti Palace, and Boboli Gardens on behalf of the Gallerie degli Uffizi. This is the third largest collection of its kind in an Italian state museum. Largely assembled by the Medici from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, the statues include works of exceptional interest to students of Greek and Roman art, notably the Medici Venus, the Medici Faun, the Niobids, and the Ariadne. The contract was signed by the parties on May 19, 2016 and work commenced on May 23, 2016.
This is a five-year project whose specific goals are: digitization of the entire collection of ancient sculpture in the Uffizi; training of students in the techniques of 3D data capture, digital modeling, and interactive online publication; publication of the 3D models created through the project on the Uffizi’s public website and the publicly available website of the VWHL's Digital Sculpture Project.
