Visualising the past, envisioning the future: using immersive technologies to explore art and culture
Important Update: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been postponed and will be rescheduled in the near future.
Dr Andrew Yip will explore how digital technologies such as virtual reality worlds, immersive visualisation and interactive exhibitions can be used to protect and preserve important works of art and culture.
You’ll learn how artists and researchers use technologies such as 3D scanning and particle accelerator imaging to interpret the past, as Andrew applies these techniques to the works of Australian modernist artists Margel Hinder and Sidney Nolan. How might new generations of students learn the skills to build communities of artists and citizen scientists interested in cultural heritage?
This talk will offer an exploration of possibilities for the future.
