Overview:

Sharing knowledge and capacity building of curators working in the Egyptian museums at the Ministry of Antiquities is one of the important ways that achieve the required development of the policies and means of preserving the Egyptian cultural heritage in a sustainable framework. In this regard, sharing advanced practical know-how and experiences that have been developed with the Art Research Center (ARC) at Ritsumeikan University in Japan achieves this goal with the support of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).

Objectives:

The photo-scanning technology contributes to preserving the objects of Egyptian museums, especially at the time of crises and disasters, such as the looting and destroying the Mallawi Museum in Egypt in August 2013, in addition to the massive destruction of the Islamic Art Museum after the Cairo Security Directorate bombing on January 24, 2014, the restoration and preservation of museum groups, add to contributing to the combating and recovery of smuggling of cultural heritage assets crimes.

The photo-scanning technique generates 3D modeling for artifacts in Egyptian museums. A digital database can be created and referred to, allowing the artifacts to be identified easily through fabric, components, and elements.
The dependence on the photo-scanning application on cultural heritage assets in Egyptian museums comes as a reflection of its practical and successful implementation on the objects of the Kyoto City Archaeological Museum in Japan under the supervision and support of the ARC. It aims to create 3D modeling of collected objects in a modernist geometric form (X, Y, Z) through precise photography with a special technique, processed with the Agisoft Metashape software v2021.


Date: March 7-9, 2023, 9:00-14:00 EET

Topic: Generating 3D Model for Museums Collections Using Photo-Scanning Technique

Venue: The Atun Museum, Minya Governorate, Egypt

Organizer: The Museums Sector at the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Egypt

A research project to visualize the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tamaki Shrine (玉置神社) using the latest 3D scanning technologies, led by Professor Satoshi Tanaka (College of Information Science and Engineering, Ritsumeikan University)--faculty member of the Art Research Center (ARC)--has officially started.

e_img_4_1671616106629.jpgThe project is jointly conducted with the Nara Prefectural Government and involves 3D measurement of Tamaki Shrine using drones, terrestrial laser scanners, and 360-degree cameras to take multifaceted measurements.

The beautiful main hall of Tamaki Shrine, the Tamaishi-sha (玉石社), as well as the Jindaisugi (神代杉) cedar tree, said to be 3,000 years old and an object of worship in the precinct, and the shrine office (社務所), designated a national important tangible cultural property, have been digitally preserved. The obtained data will be used to develop visual content as the project continues.

We express our gratitude to the people at Tamaki Shrine for their kind cooperation.

The 12th Forum for Knowledge, Arts, and Culture in Digital Humanities took place on Saturday, February 18, 2023, co-organized by the Kansai Division of the Japan Art Documentation Society and the Kansai Division of the Japan Society of Information and Knowledge in cooperation with the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the event was held online via Zoom. Participation was free of charge.

About the Forum for Knowledge, Arts, and Culture in Digital Humanities:

Along with the rapid development of the digital and information environment in recent years, we are seeing more and more cross-disciplinary research in academic fields with an awareness of "information" and "digital". This trend is gaining momentum in higher education and research activities as well, and educational programs and course activities related to this trend are being enhanced.

The need for opportunities for academic exchange among undergraduate and graduate students and young researchers studying in such programs under new research themes in line with the times is ever increasing.

For this reason, the Forum for Knowledge, Arts, and Culture in Digital Humanities was established in 2011 as a place for presentation and exchange, with a focus on graduate students and young researchers interested in information and knowledge research in arts, culture, and other related fields in mind. 11 research meetings have been held to date.

This meeting is positioned as a place where participants can mutually discover new research themes and methods through human exchange in different fields, and we also welcome exploratory and adventurous presentations that are slightly different from conventional conference presentations.

Date: February 18 (Sat), 2023, from 13:00 JST
Participation method: Online (via Zoom)

・Please note that the 'Call for Presenters' had stated that the event will be held in a hybrid form. However, it has been decided to hold the event entirely online due to the spread of COVID-19.
・ The details how to join the event will be sent by email to the presenters and those who have registered to attend.
・ The event will be held remotely and not at a venue.
