Museum (Snapchat, 3D modeling)


For this AR experience, I wanted to make an interactive museum using the CC0 collection on Sketchfab of culturally significant objects:

I used the aesthetic of old victorian museums in England, such as the Pitt Rivers and Natural History museums in Oxford, and the Natural History museum in London.

I made the architecture in Blender, and then imported it into Lens Studio to make the AR effect. The Snapchat lens is a portal, where doors open into a museum filled with ancient artifacts. When the user gets close to an artifact, a holographic display appears above it with information about it. I created this to show the possibilities of what is possible with education in AR.

The AR project:
