3D models

Part of our Gallipoli Perspectives session involves students responding to the Gallipoli exhibition by working in groups to create 3D models which express a range of actions and feelings people involved in war may have felt.

Small teams used 3D scanners to capture dramatic diorama-like sculptures. These sculptures were then published and shared online, as well as imported into virtual reality.

The students' 3D models can also be placed within a physical space and viewed using augmented reality technology such as the Microsoft Hololens.
