New technologies have ushered in an era for studying heritage with forensic accuracy. Digital and physical artisans develop projects alongside historians, scientists, restorers and curators that reveal a deeper understanding of artefacts.
Museums were conceived as places of wonder, a literal ark that brought together the natural and cultural worlds. In the renaissance we are living through now, technology is creating a new type of space and a new type of connoisseur, one who focuses on a deeper understanding of works of art.
Understanding the decisions and transformations that happen during the recording, processing, archiving and re-materialization of an object is essential. Access to technology and high-resolution data through collaboration ensures that developments stay closely in touch with work on the ground.
