Boijmans van Beuningen: Sgraffito in 3D

From 25 October 2008 til 4 January 2009 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam exhibited its wonderful collection of sgraffito objects from the period 1450-1550: Sgraffito in 3D. Sgraffito is an ancient decorative technique where patterns are scratched into wet clay. The Dutch plates, bowls and cooking pots are part of the Van Beuningen-De Vriese collection. Artist Joachim Rotteveel, together with the AR+RFID Lab, made this archaeological collection accessible in a spectacular way using 3D techniques (CT scan and 3D print). The exhibition has been made possible by the Erasmus Medical Centre (Radiology department), TNO Science and Industry (Rapid Manufacturing Demo Centre), the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (AR+RFID Lab) and the Erasmus Foundation. Here you'll find a compilation of the various part of the augmented exhibition.
