3D Modeling of Ukiyo-e Figures

Too bad I didn’t get the chance to meet Prof. Shoji Yamada, who was trying to meet me before returning to Japan tomorrow. Among other interesting projects, he has worked on data-mining faces in Ukiyo-e prints, which are then used to construct three-dimensional models. Yes, the floating world is going to manifest itself in the virtual world. Before we can blink an eye, we will be flying through Second Life in the company of crazed Kabuki performers and Yoshitoshi ghosts!
