About the Project
RRR partnered with Museum in a Box to offer this opportunity to young people, who were given the freedom to curate their own exhibit, choosing objects from collections to create replicas for audience engagement. Participants learned photogrammetry skills to scan collection items and 3D print their own pieces. Other objects were photographed and displayed as postcards.
Each 3D print/postcard gets an NFC tag that has been coded to recognise a piece of audio that was recorded by the participants. It is then played on a Raspberry Pi that sits within the box itself. When the object is placed on top of the box, the object comes to life through an audio descriptive recording. This cleverly replaces the museum text found in galleries.
