Restoration: Queensland Art Gallery

One of ZONE4’s early projects involved developing an application for the Queensland Art Gallery. This application enabled users to compare different versions of a Dutch Masters painting using various imaging methods, including x-ray, ultraviolet, infrared, and natural light. Each method offered a unique perspective on the original artwork.

The interactive model allowed users to delve into the painting’s intricacies, such as the original line drawing, restored sections, and any modifications or character changes. Additionally, the Gallery utilised the app as a tool for the initial review of artworks earmarked for restoration.

The application’s elegant transparency slider simplified the comparison of different light modes, unveiling hidden nuances within the artwork. This approach empowered users to engage in self-exploration and discovery. These principles are foundational to ZONE4’s visualisation methodology.
