It is fair to say that we have been rather busy of late. In addition to writing all the text for the galleries and sourcing relevant images, conducting interviews and editing them, we have found time to help out with 3D photography of 50 of our key objects. These will be available as interactive digital content within the mobile web experience, online for regular desktop browsing, and will allow a spectacular and up-close view of objects on mobile devices and via a large screen in the gallery itself.
Julian, from a company called Littlestar, spent several days getting the images just right – allowing a new appreciation of objects often seen in static photography.
We have also been meeting regularly with designers Opera to work on final placement of cases and objects, and to agree on the layout of interpretation. Looking at the designs in an increasingly advanced stage of completion is both very exciting – and slightly terrifying.
More soon on developments as they happen.
