Who, Why and What

Dr. Tudor Jenkins founded Wide Eyed Vision in 2007, born from a passion for photography, heritage preservation and technology. Wide Eyed Vision enables museums, galleries, heritage sites, and any locations with visual impact to easily record and digitally present real exhibitions and produce virtual exhibitions.

Tudor has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Sussex University and developed his initial experience at the University of Brighton where he worked as a Research Fellow on an E.U. funded project (EPOCH) to consider all aspects of Digitalisation applied to the Cultural Heritage sector.

Tudor was particularly interested in how 3D models could be employed to convey detailed information about artefacts in a simple, intuitive and structured way.

With this sound theoretical background Tudor was commissioned to created a virtual tour and plant/ artefact database of the National Trust's Nymans Garden, a major NT destination.

This product allows users to see how the garden appears at all times of the the year and provides an educational tool to help users investigate plants and artefacts in detail. The tour is available at the site visitor centre via a kiosk and was also sold as a CD.

Wide Eyed Vision has since undertaken a number of other projects including:

- a lottery funded oral history project
- interactive web sites
- an intuitive database for museum exhibits
- virtual tour of a major exhibition at Hampton Court

In each case emphasis has been on the quality of the media produced. A gallery puts a lot of resources into the presentation of its exhibits and this needs to be reflected in any multimedia versions of the content.

Wide Eyed Vision provides beautiful high quality digitisation and an easy to use tool for gallery curators to present digital interpretations of exhibitions.
