Arne Flaten's lecture focuses on Ashes2Art, an innovative program that develops virtual reconstructions of ancient monuments. The talk combines history, cultural heritage, archaeology and international intrigue with the computer innovations viewers see on the Discovery and History channels.
Since 2005, the award-winning Ashes2Art project has focused on innovative pedagogical and interactive undergraduate research methods of studying, interpreting, archiving, preserving and digitally disseminating materials related to virtual archaeology and culture preservation of world heritage sites. Under faculty supervision, students design the materials, including 3D digital reconstruction of ancient monuments, along with educational videos, digital panoramic photographs, web designs, thematic essays, onsite GPS data collection and educational lesson plans.
