LUXLAB: Advanced Digital Imaging Workshop #1
- When 8 Sep - 12 Sep 2014
Cnr Oxford St & Greens Rd, Paddington
For the first time in Australia, this workshop for museum professionals focuses on practical understandings of new imaging technology for preservation, conservation and visionary uses in exhibition.
LUXLAB Workshop #1 draws on the experience and technologies of Kyoto University’s Advanced Imaging Lab that has scanned over 8000 seminal artworks and national treasures throughout the world.
LUXLAB is a new initiative of the National Institute for Experimental Arts at UNSW Art & Design, bringing these technologies to the Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) sector regionally, while joining a network of laboratories located in the United Kingdom, Europe, Egypt, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and South Korea.
The workshop is designed for diverse interests in the GLAM sector, ranging from scanning technologies through to interactive exhibitions. Two state-of-the-art scanners will be installed for the workshop and participants can propose an object they would like to scan. Extensive documentation on scanning techniques will be available for all participants.
In association with LUXLAB Workshop #1, an exhibition of ultra high-resolution images of rare and important heritage from major museums and collections from across Asia and Europe will be displayed at UNSW Galleries.
