Short description:
The project ‘Sgraffito in 3D’ has made the late medieval pottery collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen accessible to a larger audience through 3D reconstruction. Visitors could touch, take-up and manipulate 3D-printed replicas. A 3D-archive let visitors play with digital representations of our cultural heritage, which were also available for research and downloading online.
Augmented Reality installations offered visitors tactile interaction and direct visual access to background knowledge of the valuable cultural objects exhibited safely behind glass.

Context:
The project ‘Sgraffito in 3D’ was initiated by Curator Historic Design Drs. Alexandra Gaba-Van Dongen of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The museum invited artist and mediatechnologist Joachim Rotteveel to present its collection of late medieval sgraffito pottery through an artistic intervention. The project was a collaboration of Joachim Rotteveel with the AR+RFID Lab – Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK), TNO Science and Industry - Rapid Manufacturing Demo Center (RMDC / RM-platform), Erasmus MC - Department of Radiology. The exhibition ‘Sgraffito in 3D: Medieval pottery as viewed by Joachim Rotteveel’ was shown at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, 24 Oct 08 – 04 Jan 09.
