“Adopting Robust Photography-based Digital Techniques in Conservation and Related Museum Contexts”

This talk presented highlights of the principles and practices for robust photography-based digital techniques in conservation and related museum contexts. Examples of existing and cutting-edge uses of photography-based imaging were presented, including Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), Algorithmic Rendering (AR), camera calibration, and methods of imaged-based generation of textured 3D geometry.

“Reflectance Transformation Imaging: Creating Rich Imaging for Interactive Use”

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) recently completed a project with Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. The purpose of the project was to determine the usefulness of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) for museum conservation. The grant results showed that RTI not only has great potential for conservation treatment, research, and outreach, but it is also an excellent tool for curators. This talk demonstrated RTI capture results and discussed the implications of RTI for museum conservation, interpretation, and public understanding.

“Computational Photography Tools and Methods for Reflectance Transformation Images (RTI)”

This talk discussed computational photography tools and methods that can capture and archive digital photo sequences, acquiring the color, 3D reflectance, and shape information used to generate Reflectance Transformation Images (RTI). Topics also included new tools to process and display RTI images and analyze these RTI images through relighting and mathematical enhancement.

“Principles and Practices of Robust, Photography-based Digital Imaging Techniques for Museums”

This full-day tutorial included lectures and demonstrations from leading researchers and museum practitioners to present the principles and practices for robust photography-based digital techniques in museum contexts. The tutorial presented many examples of existing and cutting-edge uses of photography-based imaging, including Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), Algorithmic Rendering (AR), camera calibration, and Photogrammetry methods.

“Digital Imaging Techniques for Conservation and Education”

In this CHI workshop, participants learned how Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) creates digital substitutions, or surrogates, revealing object features that are difficult to discern even under direct physical examination. (Workshops limited to 15 participants in each session.)

Speaker Mark Mudge (Tartessos Award recipient)
Presented at Arqueologia Virtual 2.0 2010
Date and Location June 16–19, 2010: Sevilla, Spain


ARCE 2010

“Linking up Worlds of Data: Digitally Remediating Egyptian Archaeology at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum”

This paper presented the first results of a collaborative pilot project conducted by the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Museum of Anthropology, the Near Eastern Studies Department, and Department of Anthropology of UC Berkeley, and Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI). The aim of the project is to start an integrated digital remediation of selected pieces in the Hearst-Reisner Egyptian collection of the Hearst for availability as an online research resource for the scientific and scholarly communities. The pilot project involved developing a methodology that permitted the production of integrated data, media and high definition imaging, and that brought together the new data with the existing historical and curatorial records.

Speaker Michael Ashely, C. Perlingieri
Presented at American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) 2010
Date and Location April 25, 2010: Oakland, California

“Towards the Collaborative Algorithmic Rendering Engine (CARE) Project”

Cultural Heritage Imaging and computer scientists from Princeton University are developing a tool called the Collaborative Algorithmic Rendering Engine (CARE). The CARE tool will perform mathematical transformations on data acquired using Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) procedures, then render out illustrations using a variety of algorithms for various effects and emphases. In short, this project proposes a revolutionary new paradigm for capturing, rendering, sharing, archiving, and preserving material culture in the humanities.

Speakers Mark Mudge, Szymon Rusinkiewicz (Princeton University), Michael Ashely, Carla Schroer

Date and Location April 6–9, 2010: Granada, Spain
