Amazing sculpture app

This is an outstanding sculpture visualization app offered by the University of Virginia art museum. The app showcases nearly 20 interesting objects from their collection. Each object can be interactively spun, zoomed, etc so that you can inspect details of the object from any angle or zoom. The photography and visualization quality is remarkable. Take a look at the bronze Buddha. The apple in his hand stays in the same position as you spin. Each piece has an accompanying essay; some of which are good. Be sure to find the interesting seal at the end of the app.

It is not mentioned in the video, but once you tap to zoom an object, you can pan around by using two fingers.

UV Art Museum App

Wonderful App! The touch technology reminded me of the Picasso Tate Museum app that allowed you to virtually spin the painting around. The Santa Barbara iCubist app was a total flop. I would recommend that the museum looks into long term digital asset management as it should continue to add objects from the permanent collection. Additionally appropriate way finding and text/label copy in the physical museum should guide visitors to use the app. That's what the Kimbell failed to do, visitors had a hard time matching the digital content to the works displayed in the gallery. Overall, very impressed!, especially in consideration that a University Art Museum pulled together the necessary resources to ensure the success of this pilot project.

Inspiring

I really enjoyed viewing each piece, and being able to get an up close , in depth look. Seeing the detailing, say, around handles, I couldn't see that in the museum. Wonderful. Just enough written detail information to hold my attention without making it a major time commitment. That said, I often found I wanted to know more. So I say you have inspired me to seek out more! Many thanks.
