Visual Resources Update December 2021
The food-safe silicone molds were made, the chocolate tempered, the chocolate casts can now be revealed. We have learned a lot about resources on campus, 3d models, molds and casting. If you have any questions about the process, or want to see the models and results, please visit 2-N-7/8 or email email@example.com.
We have populated the image viewer in ART202 (Spring, 2022) with 50 objects, many with multiple images, for students to review independently of lectures. If you are interested in having course images in Canvas please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new website for the Michigan-Princeton-Alexandria Expeditions to Sinai is now officially public: https://www.sinaiarchive.org. This digital collection is unique in its presentation because we offer the cataloguing information on the work of art itself as well as detailed cataloguing information on the images of that work. This is because:
- the images belong to two separate institutions and they need to be contacted individually for permission to publish
- the images were created using different kinds of film and lighting, on different years, showing very different views of the same works of art
We look forward to sharing more of the collection through this innovative platform.
