Technology and art often collide in new and interesting ways. This is one such example.
The project, titled A Ritual of Habits, was created by articst Rosalie Yu, who documented desserts and sweets she consumed for 2 years.
The project is composed of two parts. First, what Yu calls “virtual theater,” consists of a VR experience in which the viewer is transplanted into a world of sweets, and an augmented reality experience in which the sweets appears in front of you through a smartphone. After taking 20–50 close-up photos of a pastry, Yu transfers photos into the desktop photogrammetry app Agisoft PhotoScan to generate a 3D model of the food. Then she uses the digital sculpting tool ZBrush to make repairs after a scan and to apply texture. After the 3D models are finished, Yu uses ARKit and Unity to build the AR and VR experiences.
The second part of the project is an installation of 3D-printed objects. Yu’s sculptures of the sweets were 3D printed with stereolithography.
Yu relates the 3D scanning process to early photography.
“The way a chemical image takes shape on photo paper is similar to the software’s process of stitching photos, connecting a point cloud, and reconstructing a mesh in 3D space,” says Yu. “You can’t immediately see the results of photogrammetry, just like traditional photographs that had to be developed in a dedicated space like darkroom. There is something magical and lonesome about both of these expansive processes.”

HP Sprout has photogrammetry based 3D scanning but HP 3D Structured Light Scanner uses structured light which can capture futher dimensional details.
Currently we are running a special campaign:
If you buy a HP Pro S3 3D scanner, you get a free turntable ($1,199 worth) to ensure your 3D scanning is a success. You can shop from here.
