"One of the recent projects we’ve had was with the science museum, who closed a gallery to make way for a new one, and part of our involvement was to make a record of that, not only as a kind of archive, but also a way of keeping the gallery open digitally for all kind of people across the Web. The point cloud is a new way for us to look at the world. It is effectively just lists of numbers.
