V & A / British Museum visit

Today, we went to the V&A and British Museum to study how various environments work. There was not much to inform our project at the V & A, but we found a whole Africa section in the British Museum that featured masks, sculptures, textiles, pottery and furniture from Africa.

I took quite a lot of photos of the various artefacts so that I could study the texturing, so I know what to do when I am texturing the various models in the environment.

I also bought two books on African art and cultures, as well as a book on Silk in Africa, so that I could study the various patterns that are used in African art, but largely that of Tanzania and Kenya as that is the region that we are basing our environment on.
