Technology Description

In partnership with the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, members of the Duke University cohort are working to scan artwork and create 3D printed models for a Sensory Tour held at the museum. The Sensory Tour will allow museum goers experience the art in other ways besides visually. Individuals will get the opportunity to hold / touch 3D printed models, experience smells, and sounds affiliated with the artwork.
