Artifacts in the Classroom

3D scanned classical column.

“Bringing 3D printed models of actual artifacts into the classroom gives an immediacy to the object and recreates something of that confrontation that comes in actual fieldwork.  I’ve chosen this column not only because embedded in it is a microcosm of the entire building’s history, but also because the evidence for that history is expressed in the presence or absence of materials such as fluting, plaster, and erosion by water,” said Eric Poehler.
