Cone Virtual Tour v3.0

App Development | Professional Work

This project meticulously reconstructs the early 20th century apartments as they were and gives a glimpse of how the sisters, Etta and Claribel Cone, incorporated their vast collection of incomparable holdings of work by Henri Matisse and major examples of Picasso, Cezanne, van Gogh, and Renoir, into their everyday life. This virtual rendition of these original apartments allows viewers to “walk-through” the collection as the Cone sisters did daily, by tapping the interactive monitor.

Currently, the Virtual Tour of the Cone Sisters’ Apartments is presented at the Baltimore Museum of Art as a real time interactive simulation. In 2010 the IRC to upgraded the tour to take advantage of new technologies and discoveries about the Cone Collection. With increased graphics memory available, each frame and sculpture could be constructed with a higher degree of detail in its polygonal mesh and texturing. Sculptures that were initially two-dimensional representations were scanned in three dimensions to become full polygonal models, as seen in the “before and after” images in the gallery bellow.
