Deep Learning for Heritage Visualisation

Deep Learning can be employed in a variety of cultural heritage visualisation and reconstruction tasks. It is part of a family of machine learning approaches based upon the idea of ‘learning’ data representations through kernel-based algorithms that encode high dimensional abstractions in ‘deep’ or embedded artificial neural networks (ANNs). There...

Asteroid Bennu Visualisations

  The OSIRIS_REx spacecraft has arrived at Asteroid Bennu, on an exciting sample-return mission. Some of the earliest publicly-available photographs are of sufficient resolution to enable space-enthusiasts like me to have a crack at creating a photogrammetric model – so here it is. It’s probably not terribly accurate given the...

Mawson’s Huts VR on the EPICylinder

This image shows a portion of a 120 million pixel stereoscopic render of the photogrammetrically-reconstructed interior of Mawson’s Huts, displayed upon the EPICentre EPICylinder at UNSW. As far as I am aware, this is currently (2018) the highest resolution stereoscopic immersive display system in the world – right here in...

Antarctica: Stereoscopic & Monoscopic Panoramas for VR

USE the https version of this page: https://www.petermorse.com.au/2016/12/stereoscopic-panoramas-for-vr/ Online VR technologies have come a long way recently, so I’m finally getting around to embedding some 360º stereoscopic and monoscopic panoramas that I shot during several adventures in Antarctica (see also my media art documentation.)  These images are viewable using Google Cardboard or compatible...

Computational Ocean (2016)

Computational Ocean is a visualisation derived from my work on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. It includes global ocean data visualisations deriving from the GEBCO dataset, global Sea Surface Height Anomaly (SSHA) and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) datasets, as well as synthetic FFT-based ocean simulations. These are works-in-progress to create new and...

DomeLab

  Pre-Viz of the ARC-funded DomeLab 4k fulldome installation at the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Around 2015-6 I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at NIEA (UNSW) to set up DomeLab with Professor Sarah Kenderdine (now Director of M+, EPFL.) I was involved from...

Oculus Rift Experiments

A few experiments (more soon) with Oculus Rift: EXPERIMENT 1: An afternoon and evening faffing around with the Oculus Rift DK1 and Unity 3D, getting a first very rough sketch of my ‘Mawson’s Huts Antarcica VR experience’ working – a test-bed for future work in virtual heritage visualisation. The technology/software...

MONA Mummy

Visualization of a 2000-year-old Egyptian Mummy – Peter Morse & Paul Bourke We first started working upon the idea of visualizing one of the Egyptian Mummies from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA, Tasmania) collection in 2007, when I was approached by the exhibition designer for MONA, Adrian...

‘Frozen in Time’ Antarctic Fulldome
