Small monuments: Digitization of artifacts and affective memory:

In this workshop, participants should familiarize themselves with 3D scanning techniques, both for the appropriation of digital artifacts and for the making of their own, using a 3D scanning system based on photography. We seek to explore how these technologies can be used in contrast to the great historical narratives as a way of communicating affective memories and preserving important artifacts and places in one’s story.
