Our virtual gallery spaces are often modelled to match existing galleries. This of course requires me to create a very accurate 3D representation of the gallery. This is a one-off commission and the model is stored on our servers for future hangings and installations. With good information, most gallery models can be built from plan relatively quickly. On and in this structure, new exhibitions can be installed regularly.
For greatest accuracy in creating the model, the gallery would supply me with dimensioned architect’s plans and sections. Once I have those I can create the ‘bricks and mortar’. Photographs can provide details of wall colour and texture, floor covering, lighting positions
Whilst the models are very accurate, I consider these ‘artist renderings’, they are sketches, not exact to architectural standards but when working off proper plans, certainly accurate to within a few mm.

We scanned the show using architectural infrared technology processed through powerful AI machine servers to create a detailed Virtual tour. Those data provided 99% accurate measurements not just of the gallery but of the dimensions and positioning of each individual works alongside unparalleled 360 photo documentation such that this twin could be created. Final lighting has yet to be applied to the model shown.
