Bringing Carlow’s cultural heritage into a digital format

Working with Digital Heritage Age, this pilot project aims to raise community awareness of the value of non-destructive 3D photogrammetry for the recording and interpretation of tangible heritage objects. The project will identify three suitable pieces of stone, shaped by human hands and imbued with different meaning at the time of production. Two of the pieces will be of cut stone dating to the medieval period and one panel of rock art dating to the prehistoric period.

Methodology:

The pieces of cut stone deserve attention, as they are exposed to the elements in a time of increasing climate change that has an effect on Carlow’s built heritage as per the Built Heritage Climate Adaptation plan. The 3D scans are non-invasive and non-destructive and offer an opportunity to display important pieces of tangible heritage through an online platform, making it accessible to a worldwide community of creative artists, trans-disciplinary researchers and local communities.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
