HOLOFORGE INTERACTIVE BRINGS SUPPORT TO ARCHEOLOGY AND MUSEUMS WORLD
Bordeaux, novembre 30th 2017 – HoloForge Interactive, mixed reality pioneer, is part of the meeting : « Restore colors : Le rôle de la restitution dans les recherches sur la polychromie en sculpture, architecture et peinture murale » (Bordeaux, november 29th - december 1st 2017).
HoloForge teams up with CNRS (UMS SHS-3D Archeovision) to feature the very 1st digital polychromic restitution of History.
CNRS is engaged in preserving worldwide historical heritage. The public entity works on the geometric and chromatic restauration of major works of art and archeological objects.
Thanks to HoloForge and CNRS common efforts and expertise, it is now possible to overlap holograms on the famous bust of Akhenaton to reveal its original beauty: now, using a HoloLens app, people can have a look at the paintings, colors, decorations and volumes featured on the statue when it was originally designed.
Let's imagine what we could do in the near future... Visitors will be able « to turn the clock back » to reveal the story of precious archeological objects and masterpieces. Everyone will get the opportunity to discover sculptures, paintings, engravings… from the very first brushstroke, sometimes thousands years ago, until now - through the sketches, adjustments, damages and restorations.
