Virtual Spill — A Digital Gallery at Ian Potter Museum

Images from a project during Masters Architecture
Virtual Spill is a gallery, both real and virtual, designed to release antiquities from the Ian Potter Museum of Art into the public sphere. In this masters-level project, I delved deeply into the world of digital image-making, experimenting with both point clouds and photogrammetry. The renders were made by using exact digital models of artefacts from the museum, which were created with photogrammetry, and then inserting these models into a digital gallery and then rendered. On top of the usual 3d and renderring programs, I used a parametric modelling program to be able to render the wireframe and pointcloud versions of the objects.


I acknowledge the traditional owners of the unceded land on which I work and live — the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
