TUESDAY AUGUST 31, 2021
3:00 PM ET

The Arc/k Project’s mission is to preserve cultural assets around the world via the digital capture of objects, sites, and landscapes in order to derive detailed, texture-rich 3D models via photogrammetry. In this talk, they will discuss the importance of preserving tribal cultural heritage through this process. Join us to learn how easy it is to archive diverse tribal objects and landscapes simply by taking a series of photos, whether via cell phone, DSLR, or video. In addition to the invaluable archiving data these image sets represent, the digital 3D models created in the process can be used in a myriad of Virtual Reality and Augmented technologies, dependent on a specific tribe or band’s ultimate wishes.

Through sharing tools, technology, methods, and virtual platforms, Arc/k seeks to empower cultural heritage caretakers, experts, and communities across the globe. Arc/k’s digital archives serve communities in education, historic preservation, and research–expanding access for current and future generations.

Presenters: Brian Pope, Executive Director / Founder, Arc/k Project; Scott Purdy, Director of Operations, Arc/k Project; Krista Benson, Photogrammetry Supervisor, Arc/k Project; Brittany Delany, Director of Development, Arc/k Project.
