An emergent property of i-DAT’s research has been the development of strategies and tools for the creation and preservation of digital artefacts for museums and galleries. This research has developed through projects such as TIWWA and has led to further collaborations with the Tate.
Developing strategies and tools for the creation and preservation of digital artefacts for museums and galleries
Tate St Ives Naum Gabo Exhibition
“This projected model allows Gabo’s Bronze Spheric Theme to revolve in space as the artist originally intended. As you step into the corner of the gallery, motion sensors follow your movement and direct the digital model to rotate."
Donald Rodney collaborations
“It’s as though he’s alert to the current debate in the House of Commons chamber. We briefly discuss love, pain and flowers and when I ask him about the internet, he amusingly replies, “Excuse me?” Even with its Y2K interface, Autoicon is a technological wonder. It doesn’t just imagine black people in the future, it preserves them so that they arrive there safely and in their own image.”
