Project Details


This project has been funded by The Heritage Hub Seed Fund at the University of Portsmouth (£3k).

What would you do if museum objects could talk? This project explores audience responses to and engagement with novel interactive conversational interfaces of digitised museum artefacts in partnership with the Cumberland House Natural History Museum in Portsmouth.

The project utilises the digitisation of museum taxidermy artefacts using the Centre for Creative and Immersive Extended Reality (CCIXR) photogrammetry suite to develop an interactive experience to engage audiences with the museum collection. In order to realise the research and innovation potential of a previous student-led low-cost hologram museum artefact this project leverages real-time motion-capturing and Wizard-of-Oz methods to animate the photogrammetry scans of Taxidermy artefacts.
