The Sesquicentennial Parish Frieze will be unveiled at Mass on Thursday 20th June at 6pm. Mass and the blessing of the works will be conducted by Bishop Norman of Richborough. During the blessing the local Soprano, Penelope Martin-Jones will sing Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera (Vivaldi) and the Ave Verum Corpus (Mozart). A party will follow.
Ready to Go!
The 3D printed figures for the St. Peter’s Church Sesquicentennial Parish Frieze have now all arrived. We are awaiting the granting of a Faculty (planning permission) to allow for their installment in the Church Hall.
We are expecting to unveil the Frieze with a Public Open Day and evening celebration in early June 2019… watch this space for further details!
In the meantime, here are some images of all the figures gathered together!
The 3D Figures Have Started To Arrive
The 3D printed figures have started to arrive – both those destined for the Parish Frieze and those ordered by individuals over the scanning weekend! Here are some images of the first ones received…
The Scanned Images Have Started To Arrive
The photographic images taken by the 3D scanner have started to arrive… there are many dozens per person and many hundreds overall! These will now be entered into the appropriate computer programme to produce a physical 3D printout. Remarkable new technology!
Images from the Frieze Scanning Weekend!
The weekend scanning of individuals to appear in the St. Peter’s Sesquicenntenial Parish Frieze was a great success! People from all walks of life in the Parish turned up to be scanned… from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Right Rev. Jusin Welby down to the smallest babes in arms! Each was registered and then entered the photographic tent where over 90 cameras went off simultaneously to give the computers a complete 3D image of the person concerned. These will then be sent to the 3D printers to produce a mini-me of everyone scanned. Is it a sculpture? or is it a new form of photograph? The debate continues! Here are some images from the day…
Be Prepared To Freeze For the Frieze!
