Visualization and Conservation of the Ancient Wisdom

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course aims to explore the tangible / intangible aspects of digital heritage conservation, and the utilisation of computer graphics technology to broaden the format of narrative and messaging of cultural heritage conservation. Digital sculpting and projection mapping will be the main technical aspects to explore narrative of digital heritage conservation for further protecting, educating and consolidating “building dwelling thinking” through digital heritage preservation.

2019 年數字文化遺產課程,志在探索文化遺產保育的物質/非物質領域,運用電腦圖像技術,拓展文化遺產的敘事結構,及保育訊息傳播。技術探討方向將面向數位雕塑,投影貼圖,以及相關科技在數位文化遺產保育、教育等建立棲居思維的運用。

 

PRESENTERS

 

Dr. Chen Wu-Wei|陳 無 畏  博 士

Assistant Arts Professor 

Faculty of Arts and Sciences 

Affiliated Faculty of Center for Global Asia

NYU Shanghai

Dr. Chen Wu-Wei has served in broadcast industry as videographer, non-linear video editor as well as motion graphic designer and animator. Chen has also worked in Taiwan, New York, Beijing and Hong Kong as professional and educator. In the recent years, Dr. Chen integrates the concepts of 3D visualisation, interactive info-motion design and digital sculpting into digital heritage contents development. Dr. Chen also hosts digital heritage forum at SIGGRAPH Asia 2016/2017 and invites experts of interdisciplinary areas (museum contents, architecture, urban planning, curation and aesthetics) for sharing. Chen's latest papers are accepted by CIPA (Ottawa) and DCH (Berlin). 

 

In 2018, during the exhibition "Transference: Images and Archives of Dazu Rock Carvings" curated by Mr. Qin Zhen at the Sichuan Art Academy Museum, Dr. Chen demonstrates the web-based interactive installation of Counting Beads Avalokiteśvara of cave 125 (Beishan area of Dazu Rock Carvings,  960-1127 A.D.) in the form of point cloud visualization; In the same year, Chen also presents the digitization process to the audiences in New York during the “Virtual Journey: Chinese Buddhism Art and Architecture In the Digital Era ” exhibition curated by Ms. Jinyoung Jin at the Charles B. Wang Center; The author further collaborates with art historians and conservators to host Mellon Buddhist Workshop at the FreerSackler Museum in Washington D.C. to share the experiences and conservation/research concepts from the perspective of digital heritage. The smart heritage development of field research, digital documentation, data collection, exhibition, promotion and dissemination gets mature in the process. To push the boundary, further work can be done by utilizing the GIS mapping, AR mobile apps, and Geocinema to integrate the heritage data into more comprehensive digital narrative.

陳無畏博士現職紐約大學上海校區,之前任教於美國設計大學香港校區達六年。曾於廣播電視產業任職攝影助理、非線性剪輯師、動態圖像設計師及動畫師。陳博士亦曾在台灣、紐約、北京及香港工作及教學。近年來陳博士將數字三維可視化、交互動態圖像設計、數字雕塑等理念融入數字文化遺產內容開發,與香港絲路文化協會合作,將犍陀羅時期文物及佛教造像予以三維可視化,並導入網路交互閱覽平台。陳博士亦於2016/2017年亞洲電腦圖形及互動技術會展中,主持數字文化遺產論壇,廣邀美、德等國在博物館內容、建築、都會發展、當代藝術策展及美學等方向學有專精的人士,分享經驗。陳博士的最新論文,亦收錄於渥太華和柏林的數字文化遺產會議。
