3D Pitoti

3D Pitoti Virtual Gallery

3D Pitoti Online Gallery



"3D Pitoti" is an exhibition of digitally captured rock art from Valcamonica (BS) in the present-day Italian Alps.

The word 'Pitoti' means 'little Puppet' in the local dialect. In our display the digital 'puppets' start to move, when the visitor gets close enough.

The three dimensional scans have been made with a specially created scanner and processed as part of the EU funded 3D Pitoti research project.

The exhibition asks: how did the artists, who made this prehistoric art, understand movement?

Please use the feedback boxes in the electronic visitor's book to tell us what you think of the gallery and the art its displays.

Curator: Dr Frederick Baker, Senior Research Associate, McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research.

Design, animation and computer engineering: Dipl. Ing. Marcel Karnapke, Bauhaus University, Weimar.
