The 3D sculptures of Amandus Adamson are shown in 32” touchscreens which the visitors can use to browse through different works, zoom, scroll, rotate and read additional information.
Each screen achieves a high quality resolution so that visitors can zoom in on even minor details. This interactivity helps people get a better idea of the sculptures than picture or video.
Major works are also made as accurate as possible as they are presented in the image of the actual surroundings of their location, so the audience can see the real environment in which the sculpture is located.
The 3D Kiosk is an application of 3D Technologies R&D to help museums exhibit collection items as realtime 3D models in interactive kiosks. The solution is customisable and the design, layout, and additional items can be modified in accordance with the wishes of the museum. Objects for displaying in 3D Kiosk can be digitised by laserscanning or modelled using pictures and drawings.
The solution improves the visitor experience and enables visitors to explore the complete range of an artist’s work. 3D also enables visitors to get a better understanding of each artwork and explore even the minor details.
About the artist: Amandus Adamson (1855-1929) was Estonian sculptor. He studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg under Alexander Bock between 1876 and 1881 and completed his studies in Paris, where he was influenced by the works of Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux and Jules Dalou. One strong theme that runs through his smaller works is the sea. Amandus Adamsons’ allegorical works in the spirit of academism also reflected his feelings for his country.
