Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) Technical Coordinator, Colleen Jennings, has designed a 3D model of the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery that will enable the Irwin 2020: Collective Solitude exhibition to take place online.
By creating the model which combines the Sesnon Gallery, Porter Faculty Gallery, and Sesnon Underground, the Sesnon Gallery was able to provide the same available footprint to this year’s Irwin Scholars that is typical of past (physical) Irwin exhibitions.
“It’s been challenging and exciting at the same moment,” says Jennings. “We’re taking something based on a physical space and we’re expanding it into a universe we can expand…we’ve added parts and pieces to it that weren’t there before.”
Jennings shares her experiences building the virtual model and thoughts on its potential:
