Stunning Student Work in the 3Sixty at York

Sara Perry taught the Archaeology module to design an exhibition for the 3Sixty space at York. This year the students really went beyond all expectations and produced some stunning and innovative work that made full use of the space's abilities.

One piece, about Clifford's Tower, made use of numerous live action actors to deliver snippets of spoken word from the time. The presentation had moments where spotlights illuminated the actors in the room ( see below ).



When this piece put you in a 3D model of Clifford's Tower, slowly flying around it, it was actually breathtaking.




What is shown here is only a facsimile of the real experience ( of course the actors aren't acting for us in it ) but it does give you some idea of how well the piece was choreographed and how professionally the students wove their ideas into a compelling experience.

I was involved in helping to take their work and make it viewable using a Javascript 3D library called Three.js.


You will need Chrome/Firefox to view the piece: here

Remember, this is without the real actors. The experience is about 6 minutes long and was designed to integrate with offline museum activities and exhibition spaces.
