    Meggendorfer Online - Animating Movable Books

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2017)

    London, UK, 11 - 13 July 2017


    Marius Hug



    There is a long tradition of referring to books as two-dimensional objects usually made of paper. Our project deals with paper-objects, too. But digitising and modelling 19th century movable books by the German illustrator Lothar Meggendorfer, the project BeWeB-3D aims at computer-made models of animated 19th century paper-engineered objects, which enable interaction. The human actor has to be put in a position to trigger the movement of the model. The project is located at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin and funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
