Karina Rodriguez Echavarria, University of Brighton
In this seminar, Karina will discuss the application of 3D technologies for the documentation of public heritage located in towns and cities. It will present work on the acquisition, access and enrichment of 3D content using a ‘crowdsourcing’ approach to involve the local community.
Work on the documentation of the Steve Ovett sculpture in Preston Park will be described. The loss of this public artwork is an example of a larger national problem related to heritage crime. The talk will propose technologies to support the reconstruction of lost heritage artefacts as well as their validation when 'similar' pieces are found.
Karina Rodriguez is a Lecturer at the University of Brighton working on the 3D-COFORM project in the area of 3D visualisation and the deployment of these technologies in Cultural Heritage organisations.
