This study attempts to give an honest post-mortem review and critique of the Jacob’s Dream 3D Recreation project. The object of this thesis was to observe the effectiveness of transferring a physical three-dimensional work of art into a digital realm. The subject in this case was the Jacob’s Dream statue and garden located on Abilene Christian University’s campus and created by Mike Maxwell. Taking certain creative liberties and risks, various methods of transfer were considered. As well, the project explored different aesthetically pleasing techniques and devices for use in this artistic recreation, but special care was taken to protect the creator’s original vision and intention for the statue.
