Exhibition Brochure: the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates - A 3D Printed Model
In October 2010, the author’s 2 ft high, 3D printed model of the famous Greek, fourth century BC Choragic Monument of Lysicrates was selected for exhibition as one of the centerpieces of the Royal Scottish Academy’s Open Exhibition in Edinburgh. It was on display from 29th October – 16th December that year. The model is a digital reconstruction based upon a detailed survey of the monument carried out by the British architects James "Athenian" Stuart and Nicholas Revett in 1751, before considerable surface detail was lost from it. As a demonstration of how 3D digital technologies can assist in representing historic buildings like the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates as they were when complete and in promoting public understanding of the issues of conservation and heritage which surround them this particular model has had considerable impact, being viewed by over eight thousand five hundred visitors.
Exhibition brochure produced by the author to illustrate and promote the exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy and as a permanent record of its peer reviewed selection and presence as a centre-piece exhibit at the Royal Scottish Acdademy's Open Exibition in Edinburgh in 2010.
