On Monday, March 31 at 4:00 p.m. the Center for Humanities and the Public Sphere will present a lecture with Eleni Boiza, Rothman Faculty Summer Fellow in the UF Department of Classics, “Virtual Museum of World Heritage: A 3D DIgital Collection for the UF Digital Epigraphy and Archaeology Project” in Walker Hall 201D.
This talk will present the Virtual Museum of the Digital Epigraphy and Archaeology (DEA) Project, a Web-based tridimensional digital collection of a variety of archaeological artifacts, such as inscriptions, sculptures, and pottery. The museum’s interface provides access to the inscription or the archaeological artifact itself and enhances their study as the user has the option to zoom in, rotate, translate, and relight the objects. Dr. Bozia will briefly explain the 3D digitization process, show examples of digitized statues from Italy, and demonstrate the way the study of ancient artifacts, namely of their structural and construction techniques, can be assisted and enhanced by means of the DEA toolbox.
This event is part of the 2013-14 Fellowship Brown-Bag Series, which features informal talks by the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s Rothman Faculty Summer Fellows, Tedder Doctoral Fellows, and Rothman Doctoral Fellows. Fellows will speak for 20-30 minutes in length about their funded work, leaving ample time for questions and discussion. The Center will provide coffee and dessert.
