3D Documentation: Enhancing Conservation, Interpretation And Accessibility

By Dr. Mark Osterman, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, USA

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens will present the museum’s work funded by a Knight Foundation Museums and Technology grant. Through this project Vizcaya created a model for adapting 3D documentation technologies to interactive experiences that expand the community’s access to our collections and increase opportunities for discovery. Bridging established preservation technologies with interpretive digital technologies we created an innovative approach to conservation, accessibility and interpretation.

Related to conservation 3D documentation provides a permanent archive for predictive modeling, digital restoration, and other conservation efforts. Moving forward this data can be used to recreate, reimagine, visualize, and even reconstruct objects and architectural elements for visitor engagement and research purposes. For accessibility, 3D documentation and printing not only allows the original architectural element or object to be preserved and safe from close contact, but also enables visitors to be more active and engaged participants in exploring these elements. Moreover, the touchable, 3D replicas will transform the experience for visitors with vision impairments or other related disabilities. For interpretation, using 3D documentation and interactive technology allows visitors to freely explore and learn about aspects of the museum. As visitors virtually explore parts of Vizcaya they learn about its history and narratives along with ideas related to conservation and sustainability.

3D Documentation: Enhancing Conservation, Interpretation And Accessibility

  1. 1. 3D documentation: Enhancing Conservation, Interpretation and Accessibility Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
  2. 2. ● Tell Vizcaya’s Story ● Promote Access ● Engage Audiences Digital Guiding Principles
  3. 3. ● Vizcaya sparks dialog with audiences by emphasizing interpretation by people, for people. ● Vizcaya digitally documents, preserves and promotes its institutional legacy. ● Vizcaya’s content is universally accessible. ● Vizcaya fosters partnerships for digital development and learning. ● Vizcaya identifies, measures and inspires passion in its audiences. ● Vizcaya produces media-rich interpretive content that’s timely, interactive and multi- purpose. ● Integrate digital strategies into our institutional strategic and interpretive plans. Interpretive Technology Goals
  4. 4. 3D Documentation ● Bridging established preservation technologies with interpretive digital technologies to enhance conservation, accessibility and interpretation.. ● Expand the community’s access to our collections and increase opportunities for discovery.
  5. 5. 3D Documentation: What can we do? ● Measure surface loss and how quickly objects may be changing due to environmental and other conditions can be obtained. ● Predict rates of deterioration and inform the museum’s conservation priorities. ● Analyze effects of sea level rise and predict how sea level rise might affect Vizcaya in the future. ● Measure objects and structures to provide a permanent archive for predictive modeling, digital restoration, and other conservation efforts.
  6. 6. 3D Documentation: What can we do? ● Aid expert understanding by enabling details to be enlarged and examined on a virtually unlimited scale. ● Enhance engagement by digitally and physically recreate, reimagine, visualize, and even reconstruct objects and architectural elements for visitor engagement and research purposes. ● Improve accessibility by enabling visitors to virtually visit and explore spaces that may not be accessible and through tactile touch collections made with 3D printing technologies.

  20. 20. • Access to the 3-D functions of scanning, designing, manipulation, printing and sharing allows our visitors to engage with our museum collections tangibly and creatively. • Touchable objects will also increase accessibility for visitors with vision impairment or other relevant disabilities. • These participatory actions both increase dwell time with the object or its digital surrogate and deepen visitors’ emotional relationship with the object by allowing them to make it their own. 3D Prints https://skfb.ly/6vRRS https://skfb.ly/6uDLL
  21. 21. 3D Printing
  22. 22. Mapping ● Production of dynamic 3-D mapping products such as digital elevation models, digital terrain models, architectural surface models and other cartographic products. ● These aerial mapping data can be merged with ground based mapping and laser scanning and produce wide area 3D models of Vizcaya’s Main House, Gardens and Historic Village.
  23. 23. Academic Programs ● Research, innovation and scholarship: ideals that fuel the existence of universities and museums. ● Create programs that explore how new and emerging digital technologies can be used to document, preserve, and interpret heritage sites.
  24. 24. Moving Forward ● Vizcaya is a National Historic Landmark that strives to meet accessibility laws and internal goals, but is also greatly challenged with accessibility for its diverse visitors. ● Vizcaya is not a purpose built space. Providing access in ways that preserve the character of the historic institution requires creativity and collaboration among staff. ● We are intent on experimenting with 3D technology to help offer greater access (physical and intellectual) opportunities to all of our visitors. ● “Constraint as an impetus for innovation.” Sina Bahram
  25. 25. The widespread use of touchscreens is problematic for those with impaired vision. ● Visitor controlled contrast adjustment for the displays. ● Alternate display mode with larger fonts with large widely spaced controls. ● Alternatives to the visual display such as descriptive auditory experience. ● Integration of 3D prints into guided experiences and programs. Moving Forward
  26. 26. ● Integrate Universal Design to increase accessibility and inclusion for diverse audiences (audio description)? ● Capture visitor data to further improve and enhance the visitor experience? ● Use to enhance visitor wayfinding experience? ● All of this is: expensive, high maintenance, requires staff training – new expertise. Moving Forward
