Recognizing the lost
Digital archeology utilizes technology to showcase indigenous artifacts in a new form.
Nowadays it is common to see indigenous cultures being eroticized and exploited. This project looks through the lens of technology to bring to light the cultural context of how we see objects of value.
In a modern sense, we are taking these digitized archeological artifacts not to create replicas but instead to form familiar original versions.
What does this page do?
Using the indigenous artifacts as a reference to recreate a 3D model before feeding them into the printer to create a comparative view on how we look at objects.
Forming or warping their shape is a form of experimentation with indigenous artifacts and the use of 3D.
The starting point is to propose 3D digitization of historical and archaeological collections.
It helps spread knowledge about them and guarantees that they will be passed to future generations.
Building 3D models for the public can also be done in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Scholars from all around the world can utilize digital copies to publicize archaeology or draw attention to a particular institution or location.
