Full Exhibition Booklet

Knowing Together is a project exploring dimensions of intimacy through collaborative photogrammetry, a technique for creating 3D scans of objects using a collection of photographs from different angles. The project began as a workshop in the Smith Learning Theater at Teachers College in September, 2018 and was launched as an exhibition on December 6, 2018.

At the workshop, 35 participants learned about 3D capture by engaging as subjects and creators. As subjects, rotating participants embraced while remaining members captured each pose in a circular sequence of photos. This process was replicated throughout a day, resulting in seven scans that have been 3D printed and are exhibiting as sculptures in the Gottesman Library at Teachers College.
