Testing and playing around with 3D
It seems I learn best simply by doing. So, as we are doing 3D modeling with the Matterport system while at West Virginia University, I just wanted to test the performance of these embeds here on Medium. (Full disclosure — we have a partnership with Matterport where students are using their camera system for experimental storytelling, but more on that later.)
3D is challenged in spaces where we ourselves are challenged. One of the coolest museums I know of is right here in Appalachia, yes Pittsburgh is the Paris of Appalachia, called the Mattress Factory. It’s a site-specific art space, where the art is made for the space. Every time I visit, it always makes me turn my head sideways to think, look at something just a bit askew. Some exhibits, like the one in this model that uses strings are simply hard to focus on with human eyes, such as Anne Lindberg’s “Shift Lens” that you can experience on the third floor of this 3D virtual model of the Mattress Factory auxiliary site on Monterey Street.
Ok, my embeds don’t seem to be working — here’s the link:

Here’s another simple from a demo in class at the WVU Media Innovation Center. This is my first medium post, you are going to see a few tests from me.
