From Argus reporter to 3D museum attraction in Hove
As a journalist, he is used to being the one who asks all of the questions.
But now the tables have turned and the public will have the chance to scrutinise Adam Trimingham when a 3D image of the former Argus journalist goes on display at the British Engineerium in Hove.
Pictures have been taken of Adam using cutting-edge technology, and they are being stitched together to create a 3D image of the former Argus journalist.
Adam said: “I’m quite astounded that anyone is interested in me. It is a big surprise.
“I’m not used to it – I’m the one who asks the questions.”
The life-size picture will go on display along with Adam’s 40-year-old Carlton bicycle, which he used to ride to and from work every day until he retired from the Argus in 2005.
It will be accompanied by a storyboard detailing highlights of Adam’s career, including how he cycled more than 30 miles in search of a story to find that the person was not at home.
Adam added: “I remember when the Engineerium opened in the seventies.
“It just needs a bit more to make it a total attraction and I am hoping that the 3D image that they are going to have there will make it really big – it’s quite a gamble that Mike has taken.”
The idea to create a 3D image of Adam stemmed from businessman Mike Holland, who has been working tirelessly to restore the Grade II listed Victorian Gothic building along with creative director Jack Jolly.
Mr Jolly said: “There is a lot of work to be done now to finish the picture and it should look just like Adam.
“It is a long way off being completed but it’s a very complicated process and we want to make sure it’s right.”
It is hoped that when the museum opens its doors in 2015 after a decade of work, it will become one of Brighton and Hove’s main attractions.
