Lincoln 3D Scans
All 3D models on this website are scans of objects from the Usher Gallery and The Collection in Lincoln. The project started in 2012, when Ashley Gallant from the Collection invited the artist Oliver Laric to propose an idea for the Contemporary Art Society's Annual Award for museums.
The Contemporary Art Society Annual Award supports a UK museum to work with an artist of their choice to commission a new work that, once completed, will remain within the museum’s permanent collection. One of the most prestigious contemporary art prizes in the country, the award enables the winning museum to acquire an ambitious work of national importance.
Laric's proposal to 3D scan and subsequently publish all data for free was chosen as the winning project.
The project aims at making the collection available to an audience outside of its geographic proximity and to treat the objects as starting points for new works. All models can be downloaded and used without copyright restrictions.
This project has been made possible due to the kind support of:
The Contemporary Art Society
The Sfumato Foundation
Lincolnshire County Council
Arts Council England
