- Designing and producing digital replicas of cultural heritage
The workshop will cover the following areas:
1. Design: We will review design methods
that can be used to create a digital surrogate. We will focus
on examples from the cultural heritage domain such as the digital
facsimile of the Map of México 1550. This is a digital surrogate
that was used as part of the AZTECS exhibition held at the Royal
Academy of Art in London, UK. It will be in Germany in the spring,
when AZTECS opens at Ethnologisches Museum in Berlin.
2. Data gathering technique : In this section
we will present basic photographic approaches and other data gathering
techniques that can be used for 3D re-construction, such as photogrammetry
and stereo photography.
3. User testing for cultural heritage institutions:
In this section we will describe usability methods highlighting
how the data from these tests can be used to generate design products.
The goal is to reveal how on the basis of user test can be built
digital tools that address different contexts of use.
Students will be required to submit a proposal
