Perpetuation uses a 3D scan of a taxidermy duck from the Herbert’s Natural Sciences collection as a starting point to consider ideas of digital preservation. Using a technique called ‘photogrammetry’, the duck is rendered in digital space to be infinitely replicated and manipulated. The virtual duck is combined with textures taken from paintings, creating imaginary objects that give new life to pieces from the Herbert’s collection. ‘So much of the Herbert’s collection is stored behind the scenes. I wanted to use augmented reality as a tool to uncover items usually hidden away. Throughout the exhibition, artworks function as augmented reality markers to discover the collection.’ - Edie Jo Murray
