YDC2, Computer Science & YCBA Partner on Pope Bust Scanning Project

February 26, 2014

The Yale Digital Collections Center (YDC2) Imaging Lab and the Department of Computer Science (CS) have recently participated on a digitization project at the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA). Four busts sculpted by Louis-Fran├žois Roubiliac portraying Alexander Pope were selected as candidates for 3D laser scanning. These busts, from international institutions, were digitally acquired via triangulation laser scanner during the installation of the new exhibit, Fame and Friendship: Pope, Roubiliac, and the Portrait Bust in Eighteenth-Century Britain.
