Hot Knife produced five unique, touch-free interactives for Wollaton Hall, for their Transformation Project. The interactives were comissioned for their permanent Natural History collection and the temporary exhibition ‘Disapperaing worlds’ by renowned artist Willard Wigan.
To make the digital interactives as simple as possible, Hot Knife developed upon their previous Ultraleap experience, using the camera and tracking solution that captures all the subtlety and complexity of natural hand movements allowing for a touch-free interaction for the 5 digital kiosks.
Photogrammetry is the process by which objects or scenes in the real-world are photographed or scanned and converted into digital assets.
For museums photogrammetry is an ideal way to digitise a collection, especially 3D objects.
We took images of the taxidermied animals to create a photometric, anatomically accurate, Hyena for the interactive: ‘The Art of Taxidermy’. This interactive allows the user to explore how a taxidermy model is constructed and what parts of the animal are real.
