Exploring the application of techniques such as photogrammetry (3D scanning) in the preservation of cultural heritage – particularly textiles, garments and other delicate objects.
The project explores the notion of establishing a national digital archive of scanned 3D artefacts and the associated challenges such as technical workflow, governance structures and intellectual property issues.
The research team conducted a survey of major national museums and collecting institutions to quantify their engagement with digital cultural heritage. The project’s two principal methods of inquiry are an initial twenty-question survey of relevant staff at key national collecting institutions, which will be augmented by a more in-depth semi-structured interview process undertaken with key industry players identified during the survey procedure.
