The Kellogg Mansion – 3D Immersive Experience
September 19, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Dunedin Public Library welcomes Dr. Lori Collins (University of South Florida) to present a case study of the digital documentation of the historic Kellogg Mansion, where a holistic survey was conducted prior to demolition. She will examine the role of 3D for heritage projects, including applications using virtual and augmented realities for the preservation of memory and meaning of place. The use of 3D digitization strategies has become more available for architectural and heritage programs, but outcomes are often not of the quality or resolution to capture the variety of scales and details that translate into the meaning of a place.
The Kellogg Mansion is not unique, as even landmarked and listed significant structures continue to confront issues relating to development, loss through neglect and inattention, structural decay, and pressures from climate change and natural disasters. This talk will demonstrate the role of 3D documentation strategies with historic structures and related landscapes, providing a means for preservation and persistence, both in a physical and virtual sense. Discussion will focus on strategies to offer new ways to harness 3D data for preservation and the presentation of heritage stories to the public with lessons for using rapid 3D documentation for imperiled and at-risk heritage.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Dunedin Public Library.
