• What we'll do
This talk presents advances in robust new imaging tools from the emerging science known as Computational Photography. The common feature of the computational photography imaging family is the purpose-driven, selective extraction of information from sequences of digital photographs. Examples of existing and cutting-edge uses of photography-based imaging will be demonstrated, including Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), and 3D photogrammetry. We will show the use of these tools in a range of contexts including fine art conservation as well as research and documentation of museum and library collections. Also central to this work is the creation of data that can be reused for scientific purposes by others, both now and in the future. Our approach to the creation of a “Digital Lab Notebook” and tools under construction to support it will be presented.
Carla Schroer and Mark Mudge are co-founders of Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) a non-profit corporation that develops and implements new imaging technologies for cultural, historic and artistic heritage and scientific research.
• What to bring
A snack. There will be no food provided.
• Important to know
This event is intended to be a bit more on the technical side. We will likely have a follow up event to demonstrate some creative ways these techniques can be leveraged into motion graphics work both here in the Bay Area and around the world.
• Where to park
948 Illinois Street is the back entrance and there should be spots available along Illinois.
There is a buzzer at the front and back doors.
