About

Please re-direct to version 2.0 of the campaign: The Open Access Antiquarianism Cabinet of Curiosities.

Dear Supporters, Meanderers, and Dreamers of Antique Dreams,

The first iteration of the Open Access Antiquarianism Kickstarter has been pulling in some amazing press and enthusiasm, but we seriously misjudged the time required, SOO we are re-launching with a longer timeline to build on the foundation, adjust our crowd-funding strategies, and continue working towards our goals.

Please search for the new version of the project on Kickstarter. You can click on our profile to be redirected to our other projects. 

If your press website links to this initial page, please adjust the link to the new iteration of the project. x

_______________________________________________________

For posterity's sake, here is the original below:

You know how in movies about archaeology and history, whatever awesome thing that's been found actually ends up locked away in a giant store room? Like how at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Ark gets taken from Indiana Jones and tucked away in that huge bunker of exciting boxes full of historical goodies.

Well those rooms exist.

All over the world there are university basements, museum store rooms, and private collections bursting with artifacts that they don't have room to show and which few people ever get to see.

Excitingly, technology is changing that and giving everyone more access to the past. But it's often just as difficult to deal with the growing avalanche of digital data, the technology to do things with it, and getting that released from academia and private firms as it  would be to break into those government storage rooms and private vaults.

Ultimately Open Access Antiquarianism would like to make more people aware of all of these lovely bits of not-so-hidden history and the evolving technology that they can play with to turn it into really really cool stuff that brings the past to the present. 

Hiya, I'm Ashley. And I'm an archaeologist. And for several years my computer science colleague Vid and I have been working on projects to record, visualize, and replicate archaeological sites and artifacts through laser scanning, immersive visualization, and 3D printing.The above video shows you a few hints that, but unfortunately we can't actually show you what we've been doing--because despite National Science Foundation regulations about our data being open access, that isn't put into practice and the majority of cultural heritage diagnostics end up locked down on servers at universities.

And so what we'd like to do, is approach all of this wonderful archaeological-technological niftyness and look at it from a new, artistic viewpoint beyond academia which can reach out and hopefully capture public attention to work towards an open access past. And in so doing, we'd like to expand on the possibilities of technological-scientific-art research as a way to shake up the visualization technology and cultural heritage systems of information control and access that are currently at play, and engage more people in the past. Lofty goals, we know.

So we'd like to start with just a small piece of it all.

We want our skills, the open access archives that ARE out there, and the technology pipelines we've been building, and put them out in the public art sphere as a grand display of provocative pieces. And we'd like your support to take over a gallery space in southern California this spring, and re-fashion it as an antiquarian's Cabinet of Curiosities.

Because before there were 'scientists' and 'archaeologists,' there were 'antiquarians'-- scholars who remotely studied the world based off of the bits and pieces of international heritage that made its way into their cabinets of curiosities.

Re-Colored Historical Examples of the traditional Cabinets of Curiosities and Antiquarian Studies we'd like to re-create with new technology and technicolor twists.
Re-Colored Historical Examples of the traditional Cabinets of Curiosities and Antiquarian Studies we'd like to re-create with new technology and technicolor twists.

And we'd like to use those initial rooms and collections of the antiquarians as the template theme for our show, but with some extreme technological twists.

Because the objects in our Cabinet of Curiosities won't just be objects, they'll be a liminal blend of the digital and physical. Everything from the furniture to the light fixtures will be reconfigured to encompass  re-used geo-spatial data from remote sensing, laser scanning, photogrammetric, and other digital archives of heritage information.

This show intends to bring this ridiculously awesome but seldom seen intersection between technology and heritage to everyone's attention. We'd like to bring audiences into the space and immerse them in this in-between place between the past and present, between the virtual and physical, and stretch out the tethered layers of data that the antiquarians lacked, but that modern digital versions of information have in abundance.

We'd like to pull history out of the pedagogical and make it phenomenological. We want to put on a powerful public showcase that brings the past to the present in creative and novel ways using the latest and coolest of the technologies we've been playing with in our research.

Our  proposed Cabinet of Curiosities will be made up fabulous things like

  • 3D printed archaeological artifacts, with a particular emphasis on replicated ancient jewelry (that people at the show can actually try on)
  • Literal "arm-chair archaeology," where the furniture is upholstered in fabric printed with the geo-spatial laser scanned imagery of archaeological sites and monuments
  • 3D printed archaeological site "dollhouses" --we've been working on these cool little site models with conservation engineering in mind, but think they're just too awesome to keep hidden in labs
  • 3D modeled re-creations of sites and statues in paper, cardboard, and other mediums
  • Walls lined with swirling, interactive stereo-vision point-cloud panoramas of archaeological sites
  • A Remote Sensing Cartographic Forest
  • An interactive sandcastles for science station
  • Crowd-sourced art pieces that involve our donors
  • Wearable scientific fashion pieces built from combinations of data printed fabric, archive images, and 3D printing

  • And much much more....

In our professional research capacities, we've encountered some really really cool stuff working in this bizarre and beautiful interdisciplinary realm between archaeology and computer science. And we want to share that with everyone with the Open Access Antiquarianism Cabinet of Curiosities. 

We want to take all the research, field work, and hours we've put into learning and developing new technologies, and mush all of that together into a powerful art odyssey that aims to build beautiful things and get people engaged in history and technology.

We want to strike up a wider dialogue between the past and the people. And get them engaged in the pressing issues between tech development and cultural heritage control and access. Because right now, most of the people who are looking into the past are erudite experts, and with all of these amazing technologies at work ---there is so much more out there for Everybody to partake and play with.

With your help we can push the boundaries of technology and open access for archaeology’s sake and for art's sake.

We have the skills, the equipment (3D printer, software, hammers, hands, etc), the experience, and the creative moxy needed to put on the Open Access Antiquarianism Cabinet of Curiosities.

But we need your support to cover the insane amounts of time and energy that go into 3D modelling and replication technology usage, some of the materials, and putting on a show of gorgeousness in a fabulous venue this Spring. And it sounds like a lot, but if everyone who just thinks it would be cool gives a $1 towards it, you'd be making our archaeo-art dream come true. 

We need your support to help us push the boundaries of interdisciplinary research, art development, technological capacity, and archaeological outreach. Help us help you explore and access your past in exciting ways.

But more than that $1 or more, we especially need your support to spread the word —not just about our Open Access Antiquarianism project, but about all the lovely digital heritage that is being collected and is increasingly available for personal exploration. Because its really really cool. No seriously. Really cool.

And if you’d like to know more about our previous archaeological and art historical adventures on expeditions all around the world as part of a National Science Foundation research group with the University of California, San Diego, check out our personal scrapbook blog Adventures in Digital Archaeology.

We’ve worked professionally everywhere from Petra to Palazzo Vecchio, hunted for a Lost Da Vinci and acquired concussions in basements of obscure and awesome castles. And we’d like to bring projects like those, and all of the other wonderful cultural heritage diagnostics tech development, museum archiving, and other archaeological projects into the mainstream and public spotlight.

We'd like to start getting more and more people and industries involved and collaborating on the crucial conjoined fate of the study of the past and the development of technology for the future. There are some big goals in all of this, but it ultimately kicks off with this art show. Help us make it a reality and start a wider conversation.

Thank you for reading (and hopefully for your support in this creative research art show of awesome sauce-ness)!

Please note:

We’ve set our funding goal at the bare minimum required to put on the most basic version of our Open Access Antiquarianism Cabinet of Curiosities, but the more funding we can get for it: the better the venue and the more elaborate, extensive, and amazing the show is. If the concept takes off, we’d also like to explore moving beyond the initial show and getting it involved with other cultural heritage entities, art facilities, and tech companies.

Eventually, we’d like to add a few more rewards for donors in later, like the 3D printed archaeological artifacts and wearable LiDAR we're making for the Cabinet of Curiosities. If those strike your fancy, write in and let us know and we’ll consider putting them up sooner rather than later.

But really, we’d just generally love your feedback on any and all of this. The Past is for the People, and as we build technology and art for the past, we'd love to hear from the everyone. 

And Thanks again for reading & hopefully, your support! x

P.S. Our video is currently under production and will be up shortly. :)

Risks and challenges

We have thoroughly and exhaustively considered all the potential problems to building and displaying our work. We've built our timeline of artistic fervor around the expected and potential production delays, including the inevitable 3D printer explosions, fabric upholstering injuries, venue mishaps, and media challenges.

We have most of the large-scale equipment (like the 3D printer) already and have long been working out the kinks to the tech creativity. A majority of the reward items are being handcrafted in-house by us--which means we'll be in control and avoiding many of the problems that crop up with out-sourcing. For those few things we will be out-sourcing (like upholstery fabric printing), we've already set up a pipeline and had samples made to suss and sort out the methodology. Methodology is what we do professionally in the collaborative archaeology meets computer science world of digital archaeology. So never fear, we're on it!

However, if there were to be a zombie epidemic, surprise Ice Age, alien invasion, James Franco inspired World War III with North Korea (/other nation), or in the event of a meteor colliding with earth--we, like everyone else on the planet, are not quite sure what we will go on to do.

P.S.
We're also participating in the fabulous concept Kicking It Forward, where we pledge that 5% of anything over our goals goes back into Kickstarter to fund other awesome projects. Kickstarter is amazing and we are so excited and proud to be part of, and give back, to this wonderful vibrant modern crowd-sourcing community of innovation and creativity.
